Readers by Author


I'm not a huge fan of modern fiction so I can't actually vouch for this Readers by Author list from Lauren Leto via Instapundit.
But I do think that the list is amusing, here's an example:

Jeffrey Eugenides
Girls who didn’t get enough drama when they were younger.
Lauren Weisberger
Girls who can’t read. Or think.
Charles Dickens
Ninth graders who think they’re going to be authors someday but end up in marketing.
William Shakespeare
People who like bondage.
Mark Twain
Liars.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
People who drink scotch.
Joseph Conrad
People who drink old fashioneds.
Michael Crichton
Doctors who went to third-tier medical schools.
John Grisham
Doctors who went to medical schools in the Dominican Republic.
Dan Brown
People who used to get lost in supermarkets when they were kids.

Happy Friday everyone and I hope that all of you get a chance to relax with a book or two this 4th of July weekend.

Very funny! I did love the introduction to Eugenides book, oh what was it called, the one about the dead sparrow and the mistress, was a beautiful piece of writing. I did get enough drama - I always got lost in the supermarket!
