Beloved Writers: Last Week's Contest

Last week, with the death of Kurt Vonnegut, we asked for names of writers people felt a happy compulsion to read. Here are the replies:

Paul Auster
Samuel Beckett
Richard Brautigan
Lydia Davis
Philip K. Dick
Hermann Hesse
James Joyce
Vladimir Nabokov
Ayn Rand
J.R.R. Tolkien

.... but, no Jorge Luis Borges, Anton Chekhov, Robert Heinlein, or Franz Kafka.

Randomly-selected for a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music is John J. (who likes Beckett).

Thank you to all who sent entries.
