         color portrait of Joseph Pulitzer [1847-1911] by John Singer Sargent {detail}


Determining which authors and other artists are candidates for detailed treatment on the Spirit of America Bookstore website is subjective,
at best. Aside from the Proprietor's taste in literature, one good way to locate worthy subject matter is to glean names from major awards,
such as these Pulitzer Prizes. Note that the choices here are selective and not comprehensive, and will be expanded further as time permits.
