April 21: Top ten all-time favorite authors
Great (and TOUGH) topic! What are the qualifications, the number of their books you’ve read? Maybe you’ve only read one book, but it was totally amazing and you can’t wait for their next? An author you will buy and read everything they’ve written? What about their public persona, do you agree with their views and statements? I made this list based on a little bit of all of these. In alphabetical order by last name:
Couple of childhood favorites: Roald Dahl, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Honorable mentions: Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, Cormac McCarthy, Stewart O’Nan, Lionel Shriver, Colm Tóibín… errgh and others!
Who are your all-time favorite authors?
