There are some authors whose books I’m always going to read—no matter what. If Jonathan Franzen’s next novel is a kitschy romantic comedy between a cat lover and a bird lover, I’m going to read it. If Louise Erdrich decides to abandon psychological literary fiction to write a slapstick western, sign me up! I may not like everything by these authors, but I’m such a fan of their writing that I’m always willing to try. Jeanette Winterson is one such author for me.
