Hi, I'm trying to export an org-mode doc to LaTex and subsequently to
PDF. This is a literary novel, written in prose. Right now when I run
the export command, the resulting file is incorrectly formatted for the
literary world, and I'm not sure how to change it. Is there a dialog or
"customize" menu that allows users to eliminate some default settings,
and add others?
Maybe you can configure it with
M-x customize-group org

But I think a look at the manual is pretty useful and you can configure
it in your .emacs without very much complication:

I may be barking up the wrong tree, but to me the problem seems to be
not so much what org does, but what latex does. If that is so, then
perhaps what is needed is a latex style file that formats prose
"correctly for the literary world". That may be a non-trivial
undertaking (but maybe not: typographical demands for a novel are
trivial compared to say mathematics). Integrating such a hypothetical
style file into org would be pretty easy.

But perhaps the OP can clarify: what does "incorrectly formatted for
the literary world" mean?

I think this is right. Try


and then modify the defaults in org-export-latex-classes by deleting the \part as the first item in the Levels of the 'book' entry. This will make all your top level headings 'Chapters' which is probably what you want for a novel.
