AMERICAN WRITERS, Supplement VIII By Jay Parini Number Of Pages: 672 Publication Date: 1977-02-01 ISBN-10: 0684312301 ISBN-13: 9780684312309
This volume is mostly about contemporary writers, many of whom have received little sustained attention from critics. For example, T. C. Boyle, Jim Harrison, Shelby Hearon, Bobbie Ann Mason, Cormac McCarthy, Gloria Naylor, Paul Theroux, and Oscar Hijuelos have been written about in the review pages of newspapers and magazines, but their work has yet to attract significant scholarship. The reader will also find essays here on several writers from earlier periods, such as Harper Lee, William Maxwell, Thomas Merton and May Sarton, subjects who for various reasons were neglected in previous volumes and supplements.
