A photographic celebration of both literary luminaries and emerging voices, AUTHOR captures 200 writers, historians, journalists, playwrights, and poets from 35 countries, from Roxane Gay to Masha Gessen, Patti Smith to Zadie Smith, Karl Ove Knausgaard to J.K. Rowling, and Jonathan Franzen to Toni Morrison.  (For a complete list of writers appearing in AUTHOR, click here.)  Following an enlightening foreword by Salman Rushdie, Beowulf Sheehan shares an essay of poignant moments from making these portraits.  A treasured gift for readers and lovers of portrait photography, AUTHOR is the only book of its kind to appear in more than a decade.


Partial proceeds from AUTHOR will benefit BookUp, a program of the National Book Foundation to inspire reading by students in underserved communities across the country.  Reading isn't just fundamental.  It is a vital gateway to a successful life.

Please be sure to note to whom you want your copy of AUTHOR dedicated when placing your order.  If you are in the New York area, please contact Beowulf directly for your copy.  If you don't need your copy signed, please order yours from your favorite bookseller, thank you!
