Synopsis

Artist and graphic designer Andy Tuohy turns his hand to the world of modern literature in this new instalment of the A-Z series. Rendered in his distinctive style, this new book features portraits of 52 key modern writers significant for their contribution to literature, with a whole host of names from across the world including Simone de Beauvoir, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kazuo Ishiguro, Doris Lessing, Salman Rushdie and Vladimir Nabokov. Best-selling author Caroline Taggart provides a crib sheet of everything you need to know about each author: why they are important in the field of literature, a list of their must-read books, and a surprising fact or two about them. Alongside Andy's portraits, the book features additional imagery, including book covers and author photographs. A fun, easy guide to some of the best writers of modern times, this is a great gift for anyone who wants to broaden their literary horizons.

Andy Tuohy (Author & Illustrator) Andy Tuohy is a graphic designer and worked in advertising for many years before becoming a freelance artist and designer. He has had design work commissioned by the Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool, Turner Contemporary and Henley Regatta, and has been featured in Design Week amongst other publications. Caroline Taggart (Author) Caroline Taggart was born in London of Scottish parents, spent most of her childhood in New Zealand and went to university in Sheffield. Confused for some time, she now thinks of herself as a Londoner, but continues to change allegiance whenever it suits her, particularly during the rugby season. Having worked in publishing for 11 years, she gave up a perfectly respectable job to become a freelance editor in 1989. Since then she has worked bizarre hours, gone out to lunch a lot and indulged her lifelong dislike of getting up in the morning.
