A renowned novelist considers some of the most brilliant and original American and British writers of the last hundred years, including Henry James, Doris Lessing, John Updike, Mary McCarthy, Anthony Powell, Angela Carter, and Garrison Keillor—some of whom she has known personally.  Their best works combine both tragedy and comedy, supernatural events and social realism—and they are all fun to read.

Alison Lurie is the author of ten novels, including Foreign Affairs, which was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. She has also published studies of fashion and architecture (The Language of Clothes and The Language of Houses), and two collections of essays on children's literature. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
