About the book:

For years the personal reference shelf has remained fairly static: the dictionary and thesaurus, the atlas and almanac. But Louis Rubin's A Writer's Companion fills perfectly the niche of his own creation; it is a compilation of eclectic and elusive information on everything a writer, editor, teacher, or data-dabbler might want within arm's reach. Dedicated to Charles Dillon Stengel's maxim "You could look it up," Rubin's gift to the reference community features 66 lists and glossaries ranging from travel and transportation to history and politics, architecture and art to religion, literature, and television, plus sports, gastronomy, law, psychoanalysis, and the natural world.
