Find biographical information on more than 130,000 modern novelists, poets, playwrights, nonfiction writers, journalists and scriptwriters. Sketches typically include personal information, contact information, career history, writings, biographical and critical sources, authors' comments, and informative essays about their lives and work. A softcover cumulative index is published twice per year (included in subscription).
"Some days at the reference desk it seems that only two or three sources are necessary to successfully answer all of the day's questions. One of these few sources is always Contemporary Authors.
With more than 100,000 writers listed, CA has been the source for quick information on authors since 1962.
It is essential for libraries to have the Contemporary Authors series."
