So, it’s been awhile since I’ve participated with Booking Through Thursday, but just loved this week’s topic:
Who’s your favorite author that other people are NOT reading? The one you want to evangelize for, the one you would run popularity campaigns for? The author that, so far as you’re concerned, everyone should be reading–but that nobody seems to have heard of. You know, not JK Rowling, not Jane Austen, not Hemingway–everybody’s heard of them. The author that you think should be that famous and can’t understand why they’re not…
So, in addition to submitting my own choice(s), tonight I will be sure to search through the other entries and share them with everyone very soon! Please feel free to leave a comment below with your own choice, too!
The first two authors who came to mind were Mahbod Seraji’s Rooftops of Tehran and anything by Ad Hudler. I think these two have garnered more attention lately, but just in case they are still writing in obscurity, I thought I would offer them as my choices.
Seraji’s take on his native land of Iran — while still writing a darn good tale — has stayed with me long after I finished it.
Ad Hudler is just so funny and smart — I wanted to buy Househusband and Man of the House for a few people this Christmas and neither Borders nor Barnes and Noble had Hudler in stock. So, I figure he must still be somewhat obscure. (I’ve linked the titles to my review, by the way).
So, who else should be saved from obscurity (and why)?
