The A-Z of Great Writers

By Tom Payne


Written by Daily Express New Names award winner Tom Payne, this definitive illustrated encyclopaedia features 389 writers in every genre from every age. There is a biography of each writer, a list of their greatest works, and more.

Each entry in The A-Z of Great Writers has been an attempt to answer the question. “Why should I read this author?” The hooks format aims to plead the writers’ cases as appealingly as possible, by providing a list of their major works, a telling quotation whether it be by or about them, a brief survey of their careers and importance, and finally an illustration. The ensemble should make even the briefest flip through the book reveal the range of writers and work represented.
