literary fiction ventures out of the box

I'm excited about Making It not only because it's a book, but because it's a book that goes outside the box of a book. It's (I think) the first interactive literary fiction from a big publishing house. The epilogue is all visuals. Each visual links to content "created by" a character. So just when the reader thinks she has to say goodbye to the world of the novel, there's one more chance to connect with each character. As you know, I enjoy taking characters out of their boxes. Kudos to Simon & Schuster for supporting this new way of storytelling. It's an experiment. Let us know what you think.
