Caribbean literature, though distinguished, is only now being discovered, and this handy reference will assist readers in its discovery. Even when available elsewhere, information on these 50 English-language authors is sparse; the in-depth treatment here includes biography, description of major works and themes, summary of critical reception, and an exhaustive bibliography of works by and about each author. Both academic and public libraries will want to accept this invitation to another world.
