After recently reading The Short Story of Film by Ian Haydn Smith this popped up for request on Netgalley so I jumped at the chance to read it.

Cult Writers: 50 Nonconformist Novelists You Need to Know continues with the short format biographical form and continues it well.

Here we read about fifty novelists who’ve built up a cult following and since they are cult writers you have heard of them, but the short snippets of information give a great pocket biography of the authors that though succinct is informative.

I’m really enjoying this format of group biography as it’s the perfect bedside book, dipping into a couple of chapters a night before falling asleep is great and has no pressure, though it can be misleading and you can get pulled into reading a lot as they are so fascinating.

Great artwork from Kristelle Rodeia complements the text so well.

Another great book from Ian Haydn Smith which has really added to my TBR.
