On some favourite au­thors, from Mailer to Cor­mac McCarthy and what they have in common:

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU -

“I re­al­ized after I wrote this book that my read­ing of fic­tion has been, and I hadn’t thought about it be­fore, al­most en­tirely mono-cul­tural. It’s al­most been en­tirely Amer­i­can men, the au­thors I have read. I’m anx­ious to change that . ... My real his­tory of go­ing to bookstores and buy­ing a book has been the rugged men taletellers and I find that my in­ter­ests do go be­yond that. I was early on a reader of Louise Er­drich, but I haven’t read any of her writ­ing in a long time. I’d like to go back and see what she’s been do­ing. I’m a big fan of Sharon Olds as a poet. When­ever she has a book out, I grab it.”
