    1. I found this book in the reference section of the McLean Virginia Library. When we moved to Dhahran, I continued reading a used copy that I had purchased. It took me 2 years to read this book twice while I studied in detail mostly the new authors that Martin Seymore-Smith introduced to me from all over the world. In fact, based on his reviews and reviews of reviews country by country I formulated my own system to critique any book that I might want to read in the future. Before this book, I had [...]

    2. opinionated and at times cranky guide to fiction, poetry, and drama from world literature of the first three quarters of the 20th century. I discovered some good books in this encyclopedia, and the introduction, again opionated, lays out some possibly useful categories- swinish middlebrow, gnostic, madness etc.

    3. This amazing encylopedia of 20th century authors reveals the breadth of Seymour-Smith's reading. Broken down by nationality, full of entertaining dismissals and praise. It's one of those books very hard to put down.
