520    "Writing has not always been considered a suitable career 
       for women. Indeed, it was once common for women authors to
       adopt a masculine pseudonym in order to be taken 
       seriously. And even today, some women writers still 
       struggle to obtain the same recognition that is given to 
       their male counterparts. Nevertheless, women throughout 
       the ages have overcome these obstacles to create 
       literature of enduring importance. This attractive book 
       brings together paintings, drawings, prints, and 
       photographs of some fifty outstanding women authors, from 
       Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, and George Sand to 
       Dorothy Parker, Simone de Beauvoir, and Toni Morrison. 
       Each image is accompanied by an engaging commentary on the
       writer depicted, discussing the highlights of her career 
       and the major themes of her work. Full of insight and 
       inspiration, this is the perfect gift for any woman who 
       writes" --|cProvided by publisher
