I get all sorts of excited about authors like JM Coetzee, Raymond Carver, DFW, JJ Sullivan, Italo Calvino, Wells Tower, and Nam Le. Chekhov, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Herman Melville too; I've got a Moby-Dick tattoo. Susan Sontag, Eula Biss, Leslie Jamison.

I'm totally down with existential despair so long as you've got a sense of humor about it but I'm not cool with overstimulated affluent ennui. Don't get at me if you often complain about being bored.
