Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. Busy busy day.
Here’s one for tomorrow’s history books: which authors will we be reading 50 years from now?
This is a tricky question, because who is famous today is not necessarily who will be remembered by the scholars. Many of the authors we most associate with a time period, such as Melville and Faulkner, were not the most popular or famous writers of their own time. THE GREAT GATSBY wasn’t even F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most popular or best-reviewed book.
So who do you think is writing books that will stand the test of time?
