Waiting for minimum critic reviews


For over half a century millions of fans and readers have been captivated by the works of James A. Michener. Even the most devoted of his fans familiar with his forty major works, however, will be stunned by the unbelievable magnitude of his other writings-commentaries, forewords, introductions, magazine and newspaper articles. The extent of his influence on American thought is also indicated by the sheer volume of work written by others about Michener. David Groseclose, a Phoenix, Arizona lawyer, and an avid Michener bibliophile, has spent years in gathering information on Michener's work. The collection covers the period 1923 to 1995 and contains over 2,500 detailed, descriptive entries. Here is the most complete and exhaustive annotated bibliography ever attempted of all the writings by and about Michener, who has spent his life in keen observation of the national and international scene and in putting to pen his commentaries on the foibles and the achievements of man.

No segment of society has escaped Michener's observations on subjects as varied as art & sports, literature & politics, education & space.

A guide for both fan and scholar, and a must for libraries, this book is invaluable for the study of America's most prolific and revered writer.
