Welcome to book bloggers visiting on the hop. Thanks to Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books, weekends have become blog-hoppy.
This week's question is about favorite authors. That's a really tough question for a Bibliophiliac. One writer who comes to mind is the Canadian writer Alice Munro. Munro's short fiction is subtle, artful, and brilliant. Her stories contain entire worlds. Another master of the short story is Andre Dubus, whose work is at turns tender and pitiless. And since I'm talking about short stories, I have to admit my abiding love for the work of Chekhov; a reader could learn everything about human nature just by reading Chekhov. Okay, that's short fiction, but how about a novelist or two: I have a weakness for the Victorians, especially Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and the love of my life, Anthony Trollope. I would keep going, but I'm afraid I'm losing you, dear reader.
If you stop by on the blog hop (or for any reason at all) please leave a comment so I can return your visit. Hang out, have a look around. I just posted reviews of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Passage. I'm currently reading Columbine by Dave Cullen, and will be posting a review soon. Check out my summer reading list in "Gorging on Books" to see what else I'll be reading.
