Lives of the Writers

Lives of the Writers: Comedies, Tragedies (and What the Neighbors Thought)                     Today I finished a great book called Lives of the Writers.  Like the last review I posted, this book was published by the same author Kathleen Krull.  Lives of the Writers goes in depth of how 20 influential writers lived their lives and what kind of things they wrote.  Short stories, novels, autobiographies, folklore, etc...  This book includes people like William Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, E.B. White, Henry David Thoreau and many others!  This book, like the last, was full of interesting facts, and told things that I never even guessed these famous authors would do!  It's a very quick read and is just a fascinating book!  I would highly recommend this! :)
