LEAO, Andréa Borges. MAKING THE OLD A NOVELTY: reinventions of children and young adult literature best-sellers. Cad. CRH [online]. 2016, vol.29, n.78, pp.463-476. ISSN 0103-4979.

This article organizes a debate about the young adult literary production associated to mass production. Thus, the article has the double objective of conceptualizing the best-sellers and tracing the historic lines of connection of the contemporary production with the presence of European and American books in Brazilian edition since the 19th century. The formation of a Brazilian national literary space was marked by the importing of classics of world literary heritage, travel and adventure romances, sentimental narratives and fairy-tales guided by the transatlantic circulation of the offer and the mass consumption. The criteria established for the analysis of the writer Thalita Rebouças’ series, which focus on the national best-seller phenomenon today. These criteria supports the argument that the young adult book when following the logic of world culture circulation makes use of a thematic return to the past, reinventing itself by making the old a novelty.

Palavras-chave : Young adult best-sellers; Transnational circulation of culture; Literary series; Literary authorship.
