Review:

There are so many literary goodies in Judie L.H. Strouf's Literature Lover's Book of Lists that one gets a bit breathless trying to get across the full range of pleasures that await. Basically, this is a book of many lists, the sort of lists a lover of literature might seek and relish. There are lists of literature types and literary terminology, Nobel Prize winners and influential writers, schools of criticism and biblical allusions. There are reading lists of bestselling books, children's books, and lists of books for every genre of literature imaginable, from autobiography to Western masters. Strouf has a full section on poetry, as well, with lists pertaining to major poets from around the world, plus examples of ballad, elegy, and limerick. Drama is treated as thoroughly, as are literary periods, literary themes, and--of course--literary references. A brilliant reference itself for any student of literature, Strouf's opus is also an addictively browsable book, perfect for long car trips, Sunday mornings over coffee, and romantic evenings by the fire. It's every bibliophile's dream. --Stephanie Gold
