Today's most outstanding and widely-known writers are profiled in this handy five-volume set. Clearly written in an easy-to-use format, it collects detailed biographical and bibliographical information on approximately 700 authors who are most-often studied in college and high school. To form this concise collection, editors honed the Major 21st-Century Writers, selectively omitting some entries while adding some entirely new entries and revising others. Originally drawn from our award-winning Contemporary Authors series, sketches typically include personal information, addresses, career history, writings, work in progress, biographical/critical sources and authors' comments and/or informative essays about their lives and work. Both convenient and cost-effective, this staple resource meets the demand for information on the most popular novelists, journalists, nonfiction writers, poets, and playwrights.
"Students researching information on any one of the 700 authors featured here will find novelists, short story writers, nonfiction writers, poets, dramatists, genre writers, chidlren's literature and young adult authors."
