Reviews

"Volume 292 of the Dictionary of Literary Biography focuses on American novelists of the 21st century. The editors (both Northwestern State U.) discuss trends in contemporary American literature including the shift away from postmodern techniques in the introduction. Alphabetically arranged entries discuss the careers of such writers as Anne rice, Ha Jin, Andre Dubus III, Michael Chrichton, Anna Quindlen, and Jay McIrnerney. The text is accompanied by numerous illustrations, including author photos and reproductions of book jackets."--booknews@booknews.com (November 2004)
