About this title

Synopsis:

So now,” writes John Gardner in his Afterword to the first annotated bibliog­raphy of works by and about him, read­ing John Howell’s list of Separate pub­lications’ XXXI in all (however many that is) I feel pleasure and then alarm, rolling my eyes toward the ceiling, ask­ing God, Is it enough?’”

 

The book includes a biographical sketch; a collation of the first American edition; printing histories of first Amer­ican and British editions and of sub­sequent editions; annotated checklists of fiction, poetry, essays, reviews, and letters; an annotated checklist of inter­views: I’m astonished, reading these summaries of interviews, at how often and how deeply I contradict myself”; a checklist of manuscripts and contribu­tions to other media; secondary checklists of articles, essays, and reviews about Gardner and his works; plus photo­graphs of assorted pages, dust jackets, and Gardner memorabilia.

About the Author:

John M. Howell, who teaches Ameri­can literature at Southern Illinois Uni­versity, is John Gardner’s biographer.
