AMERICAN WRITERS, Supplement VI By Jay Parini Number Of Pages: 632 Publication Date: 2001-11-12 ISBN-10: 0684806231 ISBN-13: 9780684806235
This volume is mostly about contemporary writers, many of whom have received little sustained attention from critics. For example, William Gass, Charles Johnson, Irving Howe, Susan Minot, Grace Paley, Reynolds Price, Stanley Elkin, and Jane Smiley have been written about in the review pages of newspapers and magazines, but their work has yet to attract significant scholarship.
Supplement VI is a rich and varied collection that treats authors from a wide range of ethnic, social, and cultural backgrounds. The critics who contributed to this collection in themselves represent a range of voices and critical approaches.
