Book News
Biographical/critical sketches of 320 contemporary writers who have come to prominence among readers of English in the early 1980s. Although most of the authors profiled are imaginative writers, sketches of biographers, scientists, historians, philosophers, and critics who have made significant contributions to literature are included as well. Each sketch combines the important details of the subject's life and career with a fair representation of critical commentary. Nearly one-third of the authors profiled have included autobiographical passages to supplement their sketches. Most biographies are accompanied by a portrait; all include a bibliography of works by and about the subject. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
