I know, the topic is more or less tilted towards current living authors, but the are also many historical authors that many have not read either.
Given that slant as I indicated I bought the latest Pat Conroy novel - South of Broad, but couldn't get past the first few chapters.
So my list was put together as you indicate. Those authors I've read and enjoyed and if they released a new book or I discovered one, I'd have to "check it out"
