Reviews

Libraries with standing orders for the print Magill’s Literary Annual should by all means activate their access to the online archive. As a no-cost enhancement for libraries that purchase the subsequent print editions of the annual or have a standing order, this online archive is a fantastic deal.  -Choice, Jan. 2014 Click here for the full review

Magill presents information that can be of great value to scholars and general readers... Obviously, a long run of the Annual would be more useful than scattered sets. Large- and medium-sized public libraries should consider standing orders.  -American Reference Books Annual

…contains well-organized, informative, and cogent reviews of novels, biographies, histories, poetry, and books on current affairs and other topics  -Booklist

Magill's Literary Annual, 2016
Offers nearly 150 reviews of significant fiction and nonfiction published in 2015. Provides coverage for works that are likely to be of particular interest to the general reader, that reflect publishing trends, and that will stand the test of time.

Each year, Magill’s Literary Annual critically evaluates over 150 major examples of serious literature published during the previous calendar year. The philosophy behind our selection process is to cover works that are likely to be of interest to general readers, that are written by authors being taught in literature programs, and that will stand the test of time. By filtering the thousands of books published every year down to over 150 notable titles, the editors have provided the busy librarian with an excellent reader’s advisory tool and patrons with fodder for book discussion groups and a guide for choosing worthwhile reading material.

When you purchase the 2016 Literary Annual, we provide access to 39 years of past Annuals. That’s over 7,200 reviews and essays on three decades of the most important fiction and nonfiction. To make this vast collection available to your students and patrons you need only purchase the latest edition.


ORGANIZATION AND FORMAT
The reviews are arranged alphabetically by title. The text of each essay-review analyzes the focus, intent, and relative success of the author, as well as the makeup and point of view of the work under discussion. Essays are supplemented by a list of "Review Sources" for additional study. Every essay includes a sidebar offering a brief biography of the author or authors.
