An interesting, but not spectacular browse book. I love the big pictures of all the authors in question, and any list of great writers like this starts me jotting down new entries in the "to read" journal. However, the book seems to fail as it gets closer to the modern era, including too many folks for what seems like diversity issues or for being controversial rather than being writers who will truly hold up over time.
