Whom is your favorite author?

I do read an awful lot and I am aware there are a great many that do as well. I know that my favorite authour is Larry McMutry (Lonersome Dove, Terms of Endearment, etc) as I have 44 of his books, but I love other authours as well. Namely Steinbeck. I have a preference for American authours as thats where I grew up and that will be reflected in the poll. However, I will leave room for Others...

Re: Whom is your favorite author?

My two favourite are Leo Tolstoy and Gustave Flaubert. I like realism in literature.

Out of your list my favourite is Mark Twain. I read his novels when I was very young and I have fond memories of them. I also like F Scott Fitzgerald, Harper Lee and Gone with the Wind.

Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Whom is your favorite author?

Agatha Christie, mainly I read her while I was 14-15 but still she is amazing
Currently, I just love George R. R. Martin's work.
Paulo Coelho

Elmore Leonard.





BTW: "Whom?" Really? Come on, English is my second language and even I know that's wrong.
