Rate this:
This important new source contains 135 biographical-critical essays on contemporary Catholic American poets, dramatists, and fiction writers. The "Works By" bibliographies contain all of each author's productions--fiction, poetry, drama, or non-fiction. The "Works About" bibliographies cite five critical studies or, where none exists, book reviews, plus references to other biographical sources. The editor's introduction explores the diversity of belief in contemporary Catholic expression, and an essay by Professor Genaro Padilla examines the place of Catholicism in the work of Hispanic writers in the United States today. The writers covered here include such luminaries as John Gregory Dunne, Mary Gordon, Flannery O'Connor, Walker Percy, Don Delillo, Robert Stone, and Maureen Howard.
