BooknewsFour volumes update two biographical reference works<--> (1942) and (1955)<-->while preserving many of the first person sketches written exclusively for the H.W. Wilson series. The 2,600- plus biographies have been rewritten to include new discoveries about long-deceased authors, such as the "missing" novel by Albert Camus (published in 1995, 35 years after his death), and new interpretations of the lives and works of writers such as Hart Crane, Ezra Pound, and Ernest Hemingway. New biographies have been written in a candid manner, without glossing over details of the authors' personal lives that were discreetly ignored by earlier sources.
