Short but informative biographies on various writers, some famous, some not so much.
It's been very interesting to read and learn more about lives of the writers and I'll look out for some of Kathleen Krull's other "Lives of" books.

Engaging biographies of famous writers with little details that will surprise and entertain. I really enjoyed this book as it gave me a deeper appreciation for the books that the famous writers wrote.
