From Anne Rice's haunting vampire sagas to Anne Tyler's moving character portrayals, Southern writers have made a distinct and unique contribution to contemporary literature. Until now, uncovering the stories behind these important authors has taken frustrated researchers to many diverse sources for information. Now, St. James Press offers Contemporary Southern Writers.

This single title far surpasses competing resources with its 250 biocritical, signed entries on today's most frequently studied Southern novelists, short story writers, poets, dramatists, editors, journalists and writers of nonfiction. And, by carrying on the highly praised St. James tradition of excellence Contemporary Southern Writers provides students of literature with a one-stop, comprehensive academic reference created specifically for students, instructors and librarians.

Contemporary Southern Writers focuses on current and up-and-coming Southern authors whose works focus on the southern United States. Researchers will learn about such intriguing Southern writers as: A.R. Ammons Maya Angelou Wendell Berry Dorris Betts Harry Crews Clyde Edgerton Richard Ford Ernest J. Gaines Kaye Gibbons Jill McCorkle Larry McMurtry Reynolds Price Anne Rice Sonia Sanchez Dori Sanders Lee Smith Anne Tyler Eudora Welty

All entries are signed and range from one to three pages. An easy-to-scan data section begins the entries, providing personal information on the author, a bibliography or works arranged by genre, a list of works adapted for the media, a list of published bibliographies and criticisms and more. The main body focuses on the authors, illuminating their careers, personal lives, works and themes.

Contemporary Southern Writers offers added value with several extra features. An overview essay discussed the Southern literary tradition and its place in American literature, providing background and perspective to the contemporary authors featured in the main entries. A timeline highlights key events in the development of Southern literature, covering colonial times to the present day, providing a general historical backdrop of the people and works covered in the main entries.
