A beautiful and moving collection of photographs by Beowulf Sheehan, whose work captures the essence of 200 of our most prominent writers, historians, journalists, playwrights, and poets.

Rowling, and Jonathan Franzen to Toni Morrison.
In AUTHOR Sheehan presents the most insightful, intimate, and revealing portraits of these artists made in his studio, in their homes, in shopping malls and concert halls, on rooftops and in parking lots, on the beach and among trees, surrounded by flowers and in clock towers.

A treasure gift for readers and lovers of portrait photography, AUTHOR is the only book of its kind to appear in more than a decade.
