Summary This volume presents a wide range of American novelists across distinct generations. It includes writers born before the end of World War II, who established their reputations in the 20th century and have written important work in the 21st century; Baby Boomers of the 1940s and 1950s; and novelists born in the 1960s. All of the authors distinguished themselves as individual artists, yet share the experience of living in the United States across the 20th and 21st centuries.
