This book is a great resource for readers looking for new authors to explore. (They may also find authors they already like and know among the 50 who are included here). To name just some of those included: Djuna Barnes, Octavia Butler, Albert Camus, Colette, Sylvia Plath, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jean Rhys and Kurt Vonnegut.
The book begins with an introduction that lays out what makes a writer a cult writer specifically. Folloiwing this are the many biographical entries, all with illustrations that enhance the text.
This is a fun and interesting book for browsing. I recommend it.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
