Excerpted from Lower East Side Librarian Winter Solstice Shout Out 2010 (detail on that TK)
I was tagged by multiple people in the 15 authors game on Facebook. I didn’t get around to making my list there, and I also thought it would be good to publish it in a more archival environment than Fb. It’s supposed to be 15 authors who have influenced you or will always stay with you or whatever, and you’re not supposed to think about it for very long.
I don’t have it in me to contemplate and discuss 15 authors or books that Changed My Life. As committed and voracious a reader as I am, I’m not sure that I am especially influenced by any one writer. I have quite likely been molded by the books I read, but I think it’s the totality of them, rather than any one particular person or book.
Note: ZOMG Thank you, Marissa Falco for the drawing!!!
