I've lived here for about 15 years.
I suppose everyone has a different definition, but I tend to enjoy heavier reading.
Yikes, that's a hard question, so I'll list some of my favorite fiction writers: Jumpa Lahiri, Ian McEwan, Antonya Nelson, Gish Jen, Nick Hornby, Alice Munro, Zadie Smith.
I read some sci-fi and historical fiction. Mostly, though, I read general/literary, both modern and classic.
I've been hearing good things about On Such A Full Sea by Chang-rae Lee.
I'm always on the lookout for new authors, and this group sounds like a fun way to compare notes with others.
If you enjoy discussing books with avid readers, this is a good group for it.
