Susan Isaacs Critical Essays


(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

Susan Isaacs 1943–

American novelist, editor, and critic.

Isaacs is known for the wit and satire of her fiction which explores such subjects as suburbia, marital relationships, and the quest by women for self-fulfillment. Critics attribute her best-selling status and popularity to her accurate rendering of contemporary dialogue, sharp observations about human nature, and her use of comic one-liners to evoke the absurdity of modern living and trends.
