Roseanne Edgar Allen Poe

message 4: by John (new)

John Burnett | 6 comments My choice would be Mark Twain. He was ahead of his time in presenting stories that were simple on the surface but exposed a lot of political and social evils in society. He had a sense of humor and unique insight but never preached.

message 5: by Surabhi (new)

Surabhi (surabhis) I would like to meet Jerome K. Jerome Going by his books,he looks like he must have been a very funny guy.It would be really cool to hang out with him :)

NikhilTheReader Napoleon Hill ( The author of 'Think And Grow Rich' ). I've recommend this book to many people. A must read book for everyone.

Sheetal Dash (sheetalsdash) | 64 comments I always wanted to meet that wonderful woman called Agatha Christie. Soo surprised as well as happy to know that many others want to meet her too.

Colleen ~ The Clever Girl from Gallifrey (clevergirlfromgallifrey) John Steinbeck! Such an amazing writer. I am always amazed at the passion he writes with and the brutal honesty he gives in his writing.

message 13: by Mary (new)

Mary At the moment I go with Kafka. Ask him about his unfinished books and also see his reaction once he finds out that all his work has been published even though he told his best friend to just burn everything.

Chaitalee Ghosalkar Arthur Canon Doyle...without doubt!

Rich Goscicki | 4 comments No doubt in my mind: Franz Kafka. I'd love to tell him how right he was having written in the early '20s. His main supposition was the insignificance of the individual in the eyes of the state.

You think you're living in a free country. Try breaking the law over something trivial and insignificant, like that black kid that crossed a solid white line in Texas. That's when you learn what the state really thinks of you.

Read my "DUI Story" in my "Pot Stories". I wrote it from the eyes of K. The man helped bring on the existentialist movement and absurdism. Life is surreal.

Agree with your choices :))

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Agreed - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Jane Austen, as well as C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Bram Stoker and last but not at all least, Johanna Spyri.

You have to admit Lincoln said something that was dead WRONG. As wrong as Neville Chamberlin who declared "There will be peace in our time" when he returned from the Agreement of Munich.

As wrong as the record company owner who told Elvis Presley to "Go back to Tennessee and get a job driving a truck."

The beginning of the Gettysburg Address starts with "What we say here will not long be remembered." Now as wrong as can be.

Phani Raj (phaniraj) | 78 comments Carl Sagan.

Not just because he is an author, but also because he is a great humanist, visionary, and lively.
