I don’t think so. she was one of the biggest early 20th century authors! tbh she’s part of the reason why I now prefer american to european writing (which is a big deal for me, because growing up, I was very much the classic european lit girl).
Ahh no way. I have a huge amount of respect for the works I’ve read so far but they haven’t been books that I would consider my favorites by any means. Or books that I would read if left to my own devices (although my favorite A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is American…) Which are your favorite American authors?
