Abstract:

"Woodson's seventh-grade English teacher returned her first short story with the comment "You are the real thing." Jacqueline Woodson: "The Real Thing" explores how Woodson became the real thing, why she deserves to be acknowledged as one of the finest writers for young adults today, who her literary mentors have been, and how her family history has helped to shape her as an artist, beginning with the success of her first novel, Last Summer with Maizon, in 1990. Over the past decade, Woodson has made a steady contribution to the field, providing quality literature for both younger and older adolescents and tackling difficult themes in the process.

This volume includes a critical analysis of how Woodon's life and work intertwine and of the themes and her own goals as a writer and artist."--BOOK JACKET.
