Default Re: Your Top Ten Authors

hmmm, this is hard... Particularly as I don't have many authors where I've read all or nearly all their whole canon. Some of these therefore are based upon single books, which I'm not sure is a good thing, though it's not bad of course!

Um, currently the ones that spring to the top of my mind are:

John Steinbeck
David Mitchell
Arthur Conan Doyle
Toni Morrisson
AA Milne
Ian MacEwan
Barbarah Kingsolver
ee cummings

oh bother, there are too many others from the past two years to make up a definitive last two... Boyd, Salter, Yates, Dickens, de Berniers... all my beloved detective authors, PD James, Colin Dexter... Oh well, 8 shall have to suffice.
