Among writers of young adult fiction, Paula Danziger is no less than a superstar: from The Cat Ate My Gymsuit (1974) to You Can't Eat Your Chicken Pox, Amber Brown (1995) her books have sold in the millions and been translated into a dozen-plus languages. For her ability to portray the struggles of adolescence with a striking blend of compassion, realism, and humor, Danziger has won legions of fans. Moreover, her flamboyant, witty demeanor in person and on television has made her well known in the United States and a celebrity abroad. Illuminating this personal history as well as the writer's literary achievements is Kathleen Krull's Presenting Paula Danziger, the first booklength appraisal of the writer's life and works. Drawing on a rich array of published sources as well as new interviews conducted especially for this book, Krull zeroes in on the details contributing to Danziger's winning outlook and extraordinary success. Of special interest is the transcript of a National Public Radio interview with Danziger in England. A candid and insightful supplement for classes ranging from middle school through graduate studies, Presenting Paula Danziger offers a long-overdue appreciation of a dominant figure in contemporary young adult literature. Included in the volume are a preface, chronology, notes and references, appendixes, selected bibliography, index, and photographs.
