Who would you guys say are the writers of today that will end up being important to literature.
If that's a prerequisite, I don't know if there's anyone out there who fits the bill.
It's a good question though. I can't think of anyone out there whose name I see and think, "oh, a new whoever
book, I have to get that right now!"
If you're looking for good writing and not necessarily what may one day be canonized as IMPORTANT LITERATURE, look no further than Stephen Hines, and check out his recent short story collection, the late season
. Hosho McCreesh
is also very good, and he's got a lot going on, including a debut novel on the near horizon.
And I don't mean to imply that they don't create what may one day be seen as IMPORTANT LITERATURE, maybe they have or maybe they will. I guess I just don't know what important literature is. Important to who?
, I'd ask (not really wanting to know the answer).
