Description
As she did for others with Lives of the Musicians, Lives of the Artists, Kathleen Krull here gives us lively, engaging profiles of 20 of the world's great authors, for readers 9 and up, often including some unexpected quirks of the writers' lives and personalities, as well as how their friends and neighbors saw them. Charlotte and Emily Brontė, for example, created a world of their own with their toys, which they called Glass Town, and it remained a fertile part of their imaginations all their lives, while Isaac Bashevis Singer was known to bark like a dog to entertain visiting children. Kathryn Hewitt illuminates these mini-biographies with deft caricatures and details from their lives.
