The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books asks 125 of modernity’s greatest British and American writers — including Norman Mailer, Ann Patchett,Jonathan Franzen, Claire Messud, andJoyce Carol Oates — “to provide a list, ranked, in order, of what [they] consider the ten greatest works of fiction of all time– novels, story collections, plays, or poems.” Of the 544 separate titles selected, each is assigned a reverse-order point value based on the number position at which it appears on any list — so, a book that tops a list at number one receives 10 points, and a book that graces the bott ...

Unlike Jennifer Egan who changes pov in each chapter, le Carré did it on the same page, and when i realised it, i hate him. He's *** good.
John le Carré in 'Perfect Spy' masterfully did the technique. Jennifer Egan in her Pulitzer book also did.

In early 2003 I lived on the same street as Jennifer Egan, and, knowing her not really at all, but admiring her a lot, I’d mailed my second book to her house, praying she’d feel some vague neighborliness toward me and donate, to my sorry cause, a blurb.

Junot Diaz is America's best living writer. Jennifer Egan is a very close second
Question # 9. Where did you grow up? If more than one place, where would you call your childhood home? I’m extremely proud to be an Illinois writer. It’s the state that gave birth to Hemingway, Carl Sandburg, Nelson Algren, Mike Royko, Studs Turkel, but I’d argue that in the last fifteen years alone thirty percent of the authors deemed contemporary and significant who will be read and taught 100 years from now have roots in this state. George Saunders, who I had the privilege of introducing at a book store before he was well known, was born in Chicago and is just pure south side blood. Dave Eggers grew up in the ‘burbs and attended one of those high schools you always see featured in John Hughes films where beanie clad members of the school bridge club are always making pacts over lunch trays to lose their virginity by Arbor Day. Richard Powers ( Galatea 2.2!!!) grew up near Chicago and teaches at U of I. Jonathan Franzen was born in a suburb of St. Louis—but on the Illinois side. Jennifer Egan ...

One thing I love about Columbia: Student Q&As, chats and book signings with Pulitzer-Prize/National Book Award winning authors like Junot Diaz. Let alone authors like Irvine Welsh and Jennifer Egan. Totally agreed with Junot that America is still obsessed with the absurd idealism of masculinity and "whiteness" in media, and thus is the reason a brilliant and deep film about a Black or Latino community is still far from being accepted by the mainstream. His talk about male subjectivity in literature was something I totally agreed with too. Brilliant guy.
