Pressestimmen...a reference work that is at once extremely useful and enjoyable to read. AB Bookman's Weekly Literary biographies in reference collections are as thick as fallen leaves in late autumn. Nevertheless, in recognition of their ability to capture the essence of their subjects' lives and work, Kamm's biographies despite their brevity, merit inclusion among even the most extensive collections of literary biography. Rettig On Reference ...substantive information, yet...usable as a quick reference source and can be easily scanned for key facts...a solidly balanced work...well-chosen literary representatives. American Reference Books Annual
