Zfavourite authors

My own personal favourite authors, in random order! Some of these I love for one particular masterpiece, some for the whole corpus of their work… some for what they say, some for how they say it…. I don’t distinguish between ‘fiction’ and ‘non-fiction’; for me the concern of all these authors with the area where personal truths meet universal truths allows their work to transcend such classification.

The reason that I have left out such giants of English literature as T.S. Eliot and W.H.Auden or such international superstars as Goethe or Dante is not because I don’t rate their works highly – I do!-  but because they have not moved or inspired me personally in the same way. Their impact on me was more intellectual.
