Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I vowed never to order books from Amazon again but relented

Always wanted a reference book about English novelists, and this is pretty good. Cambridge Companion series are renown AND pricey, but this softcover one was selling at a mere $12 price (original $30!! HC is $90 ) Initially borrowed from the library and after some reading decided to buy it.

480 pages, and the treated novelists are;

Defoe, Richardson, Fielding, Burney, Sterne, Austen, Scott, Thackeray, Dickens, the Brontės, Gaskell, Trollope(son), George Eliot, Hardy, Stevenson, James, Conrad, Lawrence, Joyce,Woolf, Forster, Henry Green, Elizabeth Bowen, Waugh, Greene, Golding
