One of the coolest authors of all time? We know. (1 Viewer)


“The essential doesn't change.” Beckett
Let us assume, for the hell of it, that the list is in no particular order. Link adjusted. 8-))


“The essential doesn't change.” Beckett
DeLillo for sure... We could go on and on. These lists are so subjective. But yes, i agree. At least they got one author right: BUKOWSKI! Hey, no Henry Miller if I'm not mistaken.
I've got a house with shelves, cases, stacks and piles of books and I don't own a single book by about half of them. I haven't even heard of about 1/3 of them. I must really not be that cool. :cool:
Don't follow, but I can be rude if called upon. :confused:

Oh, I unceremoniously thought skiroomilumski was responding to me. He was responding to another hack, hooch. Got it. :eek:

Lists can be a silly thing [...]
when I've been to Thailand in 2006 there was a magazine for foreigners living there (the Thai-word for this kinda persons is "Farang" or as they pronounce it "Falang", which also was the name of said magazine).

Just then they did have a list in their latest issue: They've been rating the "Top-5-drinkers of the 20th century".

Our man is in there.

Ok - I "scored" 20 out of 50. But I did not count the ones I have forever dismissed and warned others to avoid like literary Ebola. So I guess I'm only 40% cool.

But lists are lists...
