A-Z Great Modern series, Prose: non-fiction, Literary studies: poetry & poets, Literary studies: fiction, novelists & prose write, 21st century history: from c 2000 -

A uniquely visual, fun introduction to 52 of the greatest writers of the modern age, from A (Maya Angelou, Chinua Achebe, Margaret Atwood) to Z (Stefan Zweig) via Samuel Beckett, Gunter Grass, Marcel Proust, R.K. Narayan, Virginia Woolf and more.

Artist and graphic designer Andy Tuohy turns his hand to the world of modern literature in this new instalment of the A-Z SERIES. Rendered in his distinctive style, this new book features portraits of 52 key modern writers significant for their contribution to literature, with a whole host of names from across the world including Simone de Beauvoir, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kazuo Ishiguro, Doris Lessing, Salman Rushdie and Vladimir Nabokov. Best-selling author Caroline Taggart provides a crib sheet of everything you need to know about each author: why they are important in the field of literature, a list of their must-read books, and a surprising fact or two about them. Alongside Andy's portraits, the book features additional imagery, including book covers and author photographs.

A fun, easy guide to some of the best writers of modern times, this is a great gift for anyone who wants to broaden their literary horizons.
