Paul Strathern has produced numerous 'In 90 Minutes' titles in a series which surveys philosophers and major philosophies. Now he turns his format to the world of literature, producing three fine guides especially recommended for students. Kafka In 90 Minutes (1566636205, $8.95), Dostoevsky In 90 Minutes (1566635888, $8.95) and Garcia Marquez In 90 Minutes (1566636221, $8.95) each provide concise overviews of the authors' lives and ideas, places their literary accomplishments in context with competing literature of the times, and provides selections from major writings. The blend of biographical background and literary criticism packed into 125 pages each makes each an easily-digested introduction.
