I was just sitting here thinking about how I forgot to put Kurt Vonnegut on my favorite author's list, when I received notification of a post to this thread! I just love serendipity. :wink:

I love Oscar Wilde (specialy The Birthday of the Infanta) and it also varies depending if Im reading a book I really like (when I read Animal Farm, George Orwell was a favorite of mine). I also like Rowling, but I wouldnt call her my favorite.

Voltaire. Love this man!

Does anyone know his real name? Does anyone really care? :P

Bravo Odette!

Voltaire (anagram of AROVET LI, "Arouet le Jeune"),

Quote:
Janvier 1726, chez le duc de Sully. Voltaire parle fort, amuse et brille. Le chevalier de Rohan-Chabot, piètre rejeton d'une illustre famille, l'interpelle d'un ton railleur : « Mons de Voltaire, Mons Arouet, comment vous appelez-vous ? » Voltaire, qui n'a pas la langue dans sa poche, réplique immédiatement : « Je ne suis pas comme ceux qui déshonorent le nom qu'ils ont reçu ; j'immortalise celui que j'ai pris. »

At the top are always: Margaret Atwood and J. G. Ballard.

Although I also really love:
Wilde / Joyce / Beckett / Woolf / Eliot / Russel Hoban / Stoppard / Paterson / P. K. Dick / Huysmans / Frances Burney / etc etc etc

I was kinda suprised no-one said Joyce before I did... I add Shakespeare as an after thought... coz it kinda goes without saying for most people I think! :)

The books I prefer best are: Daniel Defoe Moll Flanders, Paolo Coelho The alchimist and Jane Austen Sense and Sensibility.

Has somebody ever read Moll Flanders? Surprising heroine indeed!!!
