You and me both, Bouvre! I've been putting off posting in this thread because I kept trying to make a shortlist. :wink:

My list:
Robertson Davies- personal favourite: The Deptford Trilogy
Umberto Eco - personal favourite: The Name of the Rose
Doris Lessing - personal favourite: The Golden Notebook
P.G. Wodehouse - personal favourite: Leave It to Psmith
John Irving - personal favourite: A Son of the Circus
Gabriel Garcia Marquez - personal favourite: One Hundred Years of Solitude
Michel Basilieres - personal favourite: Black Bird
Margret Atwood - personal favourite: It's a tie - The Robber Bride and The Penelopiad

I love the writings of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. Louisa May Alcott is also a great writer.
