"The 2000 yearbook is filled with useful and interesting information: overviews of British and American fiction and nonfiction for that year, the text of Gao Xingjian's Nobel Prize address, reports on publishing trends, reports from literary organizations, a necrology, a list of literary awards, and more. As such, it is a worthwhile addition to any reference collection, but the entire set is an ideal acquisition for any libray that can afford it."
