One of the most used and widely adopted handbooks for writing in the country, A Writer's Reference with Writing about Literature (by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers) remains a favorite because of its simplicity, accessibility, and comprehensive content. The book maintains the class-tested structure typical of references written by Hacker but offers fresh new insight from Sommers, who provides new research and classroom experience to keep the book updated and in sync with today's needs. It is a quick-reference that offers valuable insights on different writing dilemmas like working with sources, preparing a portfolio, revising, and many more. What sets this edition apart from previous releases is the inclusion of the tabbed section called ‘Writing about Literature,' which serves as a practical guide to interpreting literary works. The book features sample essays that use primary and secondary sources. A Writer's Reference with Writing about Literature (ISBN 9780312601485) talks about composing and revising different types documents, academic writing, and other specific writing components like sentence style, word choice and grammar. Sommers and Hacker delve into the different challenges that multilingual writers face, as well as other ESL challenges. There is a section on punctuation and mechanics and how to conduct research. Sections devoted to MLA, APA, and CMS papers have been retained. Diana Hacker has always been known for her groundbreaking class-tested approach. She has developed several handbooks and references for writing, including the Writer's Reference Series. She has worked closely with Nancy Sommers in creating many other manuals and guides for writers, including Rules for Writers, A Pocket Style Manual, and A Writer's Reference, all of which have been released in multiple editions.
