Evelyn Waugh
Ray Bradbury
Douglas Coupland
J. G. Ballard

Deleted: Iain Banks, Jasper Fforde, Donald E. Westlake, Arthur Ransome, David Lodge. I was going to delete Shakespeare, but I have a copy of Troilus and Cressida for reasons I've forgotten. I may even have read it, once.

I say "Read Erica Jong."
