Who is Your Go-to Writer
Most writers are fairly reliable. You get the carra carra orange you paid for. (Love those oranges btw). But everyone has one writer they come to expect more from.
Mine is Stewart O'Nan, who is not only reliable but unexpected in his subjects. Read SNOW ANGELS, followed by SPEED QUEEN, followed by A PRAYER FOR THE DYING and ending with a hit of LAST NIGHT AT THE LOBSTER.
Four completely different books with some others scattered between. His canvass is one of the broadest in literature.
I am reading EMILY ALONE right now and it's a new day entirely. O'Nan is my go-to writer.
