(From Amazon): Here are inside views of twenty writers--people of all shapes, sizes, temperaments, and lifestyles, from various countries and historical periods. Included are William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Zora Neale Hurston, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and many others. “There’s enough substance here for a quick report or to enliven a longer one. Let’s hope this team continues through all the arts. An irresistible package.”--School Library Journal
