This could be represented in Microdata without an extra element:

<p itemscope>
This book has been authored by
    <span itemprop="name">
        <a itemprop="url" href="http://smith.org/john">John

Or in the hCard microformat with even less markup:

<p class="vcard">
    This book has been authored by <a class="fn url"
    href="http://smith.org/john">John Smith</a>
