Profiles of and reading lists for 100 of today's most popular nonfiction authors have been gathered together in this affordable, single source reference, which covers representatives from all major nonfiction genres--true adventure, true crime, travel and environmental narrative, science, history, life stories, and investigative writing. While focusing on such contemporary authors as Sebastian Junger, Frances Mayes, Joan Didion, Bill Bryson, and Anne Lamott, a few classics whose works are still in print and widely read (e.g., Truman Capote, M.F.K. Fisher, and Carl Sagan) are also included. In addition to information about the personal and writing lives of this fascinating and diverse group, users will find a list of their published works."--Publisher's website"
