If you are going to write a multi-generational family saga

.... put a family tree in the back. If your novel has more than about eight people in it, put a dramatis personae in the back. I started to re-read Behind the Scenes at the Museum, not remembering why I found it so irritating the first time. Not only is it four generations of a family but it's not written chronologically, so I just can't keep everyone straight. I know that this is a failing in me, but I'm reading it at bedtime and can't manage more than twenty pages per night. So I keep reading and getting confused and referring back....


That's my rant for the night.
