This is my second time doing the book blogger hop, hosted by Crazy For Books. It's a great way to meet and connect with other book bloggers.
This weeks question: Tell us about your favorite authors and why they are your favorites.
My favorite authors (in no particular order):
Kurt Vonnegut: Vonnegut will always be one of my favorite American authors. He manages to make me think about society and politics in a way that I normally wouldn't, warning against the dangers of totalitarianism and extreme egalitarianism. His short stories are also great.
Margaret Atwood: My favorite author of dystopian novels.
George Eliot: Mill on the Floss, Silas Marner, Middlemarch, Daniel Deronda - all amazing.
e. e. cummings: His poetry changed my live. Enough said.
Audrey Niffeneger: Despite her mass-market appeal I can't help but love everything she has ever published. I am eagerly looking forward to the Night Bookmobile.
Wilkie Collins: Arguably the first author to write suspense fiction - Victorian tone with intriguing plots. How can you go wrong?
