"(It) provides a survey of writers who have had a profound impact on literature and the world, examining each writer's life, career, and lasting legacy."

It uses the book's Honorable Mentions list and comprises 100 authors and their principal works. It features many feminist works through the ages and includes several Nobel Prize winners.
(The authors are listed alphabetically.)
