Kellner worked directly from the collection of often-overlooked novelist Donald Windham to produce this reference work. Entries on books, pamphlets, articles, and criticism provide a comprehensive record of Windham's literary development, critical reception, failures, and achievements. According to Kellner, the public has yet to fully embrace the exacting, quiet eloquence of Windham's writing; time, he suggests, will vindicate Windham. This reference will be valuable to students, scholars, and general audiences of literature.
