Book Description

The International Who's Who of Authors and Writers 2012 is a valuable and practical source of biographical information on the key personalities and organizations of the literary world. All entrants have the opportunity to update their entries, confirming existing titles and contributions and listing new ones, providing career details and professional experience, and updating their contact information. This title is international in its scope and covers all literary genres. 

Now in its twenty-seventh edition, this descriptive directory is revised and updated annually by our editorial team and covers the most important authors and writers at work today, along with lesser known ones for whom information is harder to find. This title will prove a worthwhile acquisition for public and academic libraries, journalists, television and radio companies, PR companies, literary organizations and anyone needing up-to-date information in this field.

Each entry provides personal information, career details, works published, literary awards and prizes, memberships and contact information, where available.
