With His New Novel Ken Follett Moves to Literary Fiction from Thrillers.

Writer Ken Follett. He was only 27 when his 11th novel, "Eye of the Needle," became a huge bestseller. When it was later adapted into a hit film, it only enhanced Follett's reputation as a master of the thriller genre. His other novels include "Triple" and "The Key to Rebecca." Follett's latest effort is a departure from this successful formula. "The Pillars of the Earth" is a historical novel set in 12th century England; its plot centers on the building of a cathedral.
