In Laurie Halse Anderson: Speaking in Tongues, Wendy J. Glenn examines the life and works of one of the most popular authors for teens. Drawing from both primary sources (Anderson''s writings, published interviews and speeches, the author''s blog and other online sources, as well as a live interview with the author) and secondary sources (reviews of and scholarly articles on her work), Glenn explores the themes and impact of Anderson''s novels. This richly researched work includes in-depth analyses of each of Anderson''s young adult titles, chapters on Anderson''s lesser-known writings for children, short stories, and poems, and a synthesis of reviews for each title Anderson has published.
