Books/authors you feel obligated to like, but don't?
#21
I was told as young man to write well one should write like Hemingway. That meant short declarative sentences. I was told John Hershey wrote well, and sundry others. I discovered Herman Hesse in college, and then Ian Fleming. I read John LeCarre and Graham Greene without direcrtion. I read Sartre. Genet, and Camus because I was told to read them. Later Chesterton, and outside of Thursday I'd rather read Superman. I know I'm nutz,.
