This is the 2nd in the Krull and Hewitt's "Lives of ..." series. The book contains 19 chapters on 20 writers in birth order: Murasaki Shikibu (973?-1025?), Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616), William Shakespeare (1564-1616), Jane Austen (1775-1817), Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875), Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), Charles Dickens (1812-1870), Charlotte & Emily Bronte (1816-1855 & 1818-1848), Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888), Mark Twain (1835-1910), Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924), Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), Jack London (1876-1916), Carl Sandburg (1878-1967), E. B. White (1899-1985), Zora Neale Hurston (1901?-1960), Langston Hughes (1902-1967), Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991)
This is a perfect book for young adolescents and pre-teens who as they grow and mature frequently feel awkward. Krull introduces us to the idiosyncrasies of the literary. Some of the authors were loners, eccentric, a wee bit peculiar. Michael Jackson's behaviors might seem normal when held in comparison. Some retreated into themselves. Some sought out adventures. Some as adults were unsuccessful at the ordinary.
Some worked at a young age to support the family. Some took daily walks, very long daily walks. Some were not healthy and therefore wrote in bed. There were some similarities and some differences, but they all shared a singular conviction to write and write they each did well.
Hewitt's delightful portraits of the writers are precious. My favorite portrait is of Frances Hodgson Burnett of "The Secret Garden" fame. Her hat is the secret garden.
Given the high price of the book, I was surprised that Krull did not include a list of the authors' books and/or poems and the publication years. END

I bought this for my 10 year old granddaughter. I think that it is a nice introduction to literature for children. It will encourage them to read and research more about these and other writers.

Articles are usually 2-3 pages in length, sometimes including a little know fact. Use this for a brief introduction to a well-known composer. Suitable for all grades as a starting point, depending on level of students' previous knowledge

A book written for children before Y2K loss of faith in how much electronic piracy would intrude in how Nixon made it possible to see the future in an army wet dream for transition to creative destruction only became part of my views on this book because Edgar Allan Poe was described as Imp of the Perverse. We don't pay big bucks to authors who tell us nevermore keeps coming back. Poe wrote an essay on the art of composition in which the famous poem The Raven is described as a poem to be read in a single sitting to enhance the continuity of the brain flame that tied his life to the characters called Muddy and Sissy in this book. When Poe was 27, he married his cousin, Sissy, who was at the tender age of 13. Poe was sometimes between jobs for years at a time. He had a scar from being punched in the face by a man who was wearing a ring. Sissy was ill with tuberculosis. She died at the age of 24, and Poe died at the age of 40. Horror that was real for him became sensational entertainment values in the years after he died in 1849.

The second book in Krull's "Lives of..." series covers an assortment of famous writers including de Cervantes, Shakespeare, Austen, Poe, Dickens, Dickinson, Sandburg and others. Rather than focusing on the dry details of their lives, Krull goes for what really interests us about other people: their foibles and quirks and oh-so-human idiosyncrasies. Although she covers the basic facts and dates about the authors in a brief opening summary, Krull primarily focuses on the juicier details of these authors' lives, including their unusual (and sometimes scandalous) marriages, preferences in food and dress and their more eccentric activities. Brief mention is made of each of their more important works at the end of each chapter in a short "bookmarks" section. Though I wish a few of my other favorite authors had been included, I found the lives of those that are covered (including a few with whose work I was not familiar including Shikibu, Langston Hughes and I.B. Singer) extremely interesting and, in some cases, was persuaded to order a few of their books. Though each is made as fascinating as the characters they themselves created, I found a few more amusing than others, including Mark Twain (who was almost as much of a rascal as his beloved Tom Sawyer), E.B. White (whose biggest compliment to his wife was "you smell of pencil shavings") and Miguel de Cervantes (whose life sounds very much like that of Don Quixote!) Krull ably brings each author alive and made me wish that I had been numbered among their neighbors and been able to witness these amazing (and sometimes quite farcical) characters myself!
LIVES OF THE WRITERS: COMEDIES, TRAGEDIES (WHAT THE NEIGHBORS THOUGHT) is a long title for such a little book! However, the book is long enough for what it is: a voyeuristic peek into secret details about writers that are not included in many biographies. This little book of little-known facts is witty and interesting. There is one prerequisite to enjoying this book, though: the reader should already know the writers fairly well in order to enjoy these snippets. This is not a detailed biography, but it sure is fun for those readers who already know the writers! Enjoy!
