Anyone who enjoys modern fiction will be captivated by this fascinating and wide-ranging work of reference. Taking in novelists from all over the globe, and from the beginning of the century to the present day, this is the most thorough survey of the great practitioners of twentieth century fiction, from Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford, through Albert Camus and Franz Kafka to Chinua Achebe and Peter Hoeg. Scholarly and informative, but at all times highly readable and enjoyable, Who's Who of Twentieth Century Novelists gives a superb insight into the richness and diversity of the art form that is the twentieth century novel.
