This colourful book set pays tribute to all women who have put pen to paper. Features works by American authors Joan Didion, Maxine Hong Kingston, Maya Angelou, Eudora Welty, Carson McCullers, Ursula K. Le Guin, Toni Morrison, and Patricia Highsmith.
Central to America’s rich literary canon are the female authors who have produced innumerable novels, short stories, and memoirs. The non-fiction works of Joan Didion, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Maya Angelou illuminate a range of experiences of American female identity; Eudora Welty and Carson McCullers’ novels bring the Deep South to life, and Ursula K. Le Guin creates fantastic fictional worlds readers can lose themselves in. Rounding these out are Toni Morrison’s Pulitzer Prize Winning novel, Beloved, and three of Patricia Highsmith’s psychological crime novels from her Mr. Ripley series. These authors are united in a colourful book set which pays tribute to all women who have put pen to paper. Across the spines is a modern interpretation of the iconic “Rosie the Riveter” poster painted by Denver-based artist Kimothy Joy. Each book in the set is a hardcover, clothbound volume published by Library of America, Everyman’s Library, or The Modern Library.
