Writers of Multicultural Fiction for Young Adults. A Bio-Critical Sourcebook.
Kutzer, M. Daphne, Ed.
This reference book includes 51 alphabetically arranged entries about writers of multicultural fiction for young adults. Each entry consists of a biographical introduction to the author, an overview of his or her major young adult works, a section on the critical reception of the author's writings, a bibliography of works by the author, and a selected bibliography of criticism. The individual biographies are as current as is possible, given the recent literature on the author. The volume closes with a selected bibliography of 68 works related to multicultural literature. The first part lists general studies, and other sections cite works focusing on African American, Hispanic American, Native American, Asian American, and Jewish literature. (SLD)
