Okay who is everyone's favorite author, and why? One answer only please, or and "I can't decide". Let's not turn this into a listing.
Mine: Bret Easton Ellis.
Why: Because every time I read a book or story by the guy in less than 10 pages i'm hooked by the narrator. Ellis is an author that is here to break our defensive barriers and burn our safety nets to the ground. He makes me feel vulnerable and depressed, and for that, i'm grateful.
