Format: Hardcover
American literature has produced great names, like Twain, Fitzgerald and Hemingway. Kutzer here in no way gainsays the works of such luminaries. But she has given us a reference book of less known authors, that hail from other ethnic threads of the multivaried American experience. African, Asian, Latino, Native and Jewish.
For each author, she provides several pages of biography, followed by a synopsis of the author's major works and themes. Realistically, for most of the authors, this will be the longest biography they will get.
Depending on how well read you are, you may recognise some of the names. Perhaps the best known to a general audience is Isaac Bashevis Singer. Who, as his biography indicates, had the good fortune to leave Warsaw for the United States in the 1930s; avoiding the Holocaust.
