We're not allowed to like dead ones? :mf_rosetinted:

 

i really want to know about those who are alive much more, im really interested in that.

 

"when you ask some people whats new in literature and the answer is: sartre,

 

we wait for them to die."

 

just a quote of one of mine

ok but please also tell me the dead ones,lol, im curious to know who you read :naughty:

 

Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Mary Stewart (might still be alive but isn't a "current" writer), Nevil Shute (ditto) Camus (La Peste- can't read French well enough for the rest)-all very conventional

 

What about you, Pam?

Very tough to narrow down the list...

 

When you say authors, you don't mean poets, or playwrights, but more "book" authors, novelists, right?

 

Wow, very hard to keep it to 5 -- I could do 5 in multiple genres

and eras :wink2: Including children's literature, historical fiction,

nonfiction... OK, here are my lists as of today -- the names

that came to mind right away. Tomorrow these lists could be

totally different! :naughty:

 

5 Alive -- English language:

Michael Chabon

Toni Morrison

Barbara Kingsolver

Louise Erdrich

Gore Vidal

 

 

5 Not So Alive Anymore:

Kurt Vonnegut

Mark Twain

Edgar Allan Poe

Roald Dahl

Dr. Seuss

really? what did you read from him? did you read his essays?

i dont think ill ever be sure of what he said about warhol but there is sthg he once said that makes me laugh anytime i think of it:

 

"what other culture could have produced someone like hemingway and not seen the joke?"

 

i think it could work with madonna too, right? right.

I absolutely love Ray Bradbury. I think he's a total genious!

 

Apart from him... I like a lot Ernesto Sábato (argentinean), Julio Cortázar, Gustavo Adolfo Becquer (you must read his rhymes, you will fall in love), Jules Verne, Charles Baudelaire and Marquis de Sade.

 

There are also many other writers I love (cause reading is something I really enjoy), but I think those are my all time favourites.
