Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This reference work contains a comprehensive listing of contemporary novelists writing in English. Included for each are a short, critical commentary, usually less than a page, by a specialist in the author's work. Also present are many works by women writers, reflecting their increasing participation as novelists. Missing from this edition, however, is the appendix of the fourth edition, which featured writers who have died since 1960 but have contemporary reputations. Such writers as Lawrence Durrell and John Gardner, included in that section and still widely read today, do not appear in this updated version. Nevertheless, this work does provide valuable information, especially for the undergraduate or the researcher seeking a brief overview of today's novelists and short story writers.
