OPTION A----Initial Modifier is first female author-modifier tell us that after comma modified noun should come i.e name of some person but infact it is name of the book not name of the person.Modifier wrongly modifying wrong noun.
OPTION B----CORRECT
OPTION C----Same problem as mentioned in OPTION A
OPTION D-----Written by some modifier tells us that after come the one who has written should come, which is not the case..Wrong
OPTION E------unnecessary long compared to option B.
