Favourite Authors

Margaret Atwood, Edna O'Brien, Patrick Hamilton, TC Boyle. These are my four favourite authors and I know they're my favourite because I've read all their books. Douglas Coupland isn't half bad either. My favourite book of all time is The Handmaid's Tale (I've read it four times).

I've always wanted to read "The Handmaid's Tale". I saw the movie years ago and thought it was an intriguing idea. So might give that one a go. What makes it your favourite ever book, Nora? Do tell...

At present I seem to have acquired an unfortunate habit of trying out new novels which turn out to be a load of old cobblers (in spite of all the fawning comments by the critics). A recent case was "The Time-Traveller's Wife" - arty-farty tosh and not even very exciting. And I recently started "On Beauty" by Zadie Smith and gave up on that before I even finished - a self-involved and irritating group of characters and not even very funny!

Personal favourite authors of mine are Armistead Maupin, Irvine Welsh, Meera Syall and Andrea Newman to name a few...quite a mixed bag really.

I love Patrick Hamilton - especially 'Hangover Square'.

Right that's it. Definitely something fishy. I love Handmaid's Tale. :)

If you enjoy Atwood, you may also like Margaret Laurence, Carol Shields, and Timothy Findlay..... All Canadian all great.
