Compendium of Twentieth Century Novelists and Novels


Facts on File, a leading New York publishing firm, is publishing a
Compendium of International 20th Century Novelists and Novels. As the editor
of this volume, I am seeking scholars to write 250-3000 word contributions
on the authors and their works collected in this reference work. The
novelists are identified as those who wrote during the 20th century, wrote
originally in a language other than English (English translation followed),
and whose works are likely to be taught in the college or high school
curriculum. This criteria excludes American and British authors. The
collection will consist of 200 novelists and 300 novels from an
international perspective. Please let me know soon if you have an interest
in writing on one or more of the entries. This volume promises to be a
unique collection of works from the world over. I am attaching a list of
novelists and novels available for selection. As a way of introduction, I am
a professor of English at Texas Southern University, Houston, TX. Facts on
File has asked me to work as the general editor of this publication project.
Publication of Compendium of 20th Century Novelists and Novels is expected
in 2006.
