Authors I'd really love to meet in person...
From top left to bottom right:
Nick Hornby - The first novel I ever read in English was his About A Boy. Thanks for starting my passion for reading.
Haruki Murakami - Murakami writes weird but beautiful books. Would love to get to know a man with such an impact on the reading world.
Jonathan Safran Foer - I fell for Extremely Loud and Incredibliy Close. Is there more to say?
Carlos Ruiz Zafon - Of course I'd like to meet the author of my favorite book all time The Shadows of the Wind.
Margaret Atwood- Look at her. She is so awesome. I'm determined to read all of her books.
Siri Hustvedt - Never heard of her? Go read her book What I loved.
Jeffrey Eugenides - I lost myself in his epic Middlesex. I sure would like to take a closer look at him.
Jon Krakauer - His encounter with Mount Everest nearly pushed me off the cliff.
Banana Yoshimoto - Her books fascinate me. I sure would like to have a cup of tea with her in any Kitchen.
Zadie Smith - Her books have been most challenging reads language wise. And she has written On Beauty.
