Editorial Reviews

?The challenge of the compilers of Caribbean Women Novelists was to produce a comprehensive and up-to-date resource on its subject, encompassing the diversity of languages and traditions, in order ''to provide a useful tool for the comparative study of women''s literature.'' They have succeeded with this comprehensive critical bibliographic study. In large public libraries and in academic institutions, this resource will help fill an information void. It is recommended for specialized collections in literary, ethnic, and women''s studies.?-Reference Books Bulletin
