Top Ten Dead Authors I Would Want to Meet


Last week’s top ten tuesday got me thinking about all the authors I loved who I will never get to meet. The question is always phrased who would you want to meet living or dead. Since last week’s post was on living authors I really want to meet, this week I thought I’d do the other side of the question – authors who are dead. Let me know in the comments who you’d want to meet and/or what you think of my picks!

Big thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

  1. Oh my god I totally agree! Fantastic post, great picks! 😀 When we did top ten authors I REALLY want to meet last week, I limited it to ones that are still alive and it really was so hard.
    Happy reading,

  2. Great post! I agree with most of these. I’d worry that Salinger would be a real dread to talk to, but maybe if you pretended not to want to talk about his work then he’d be alright.

  3. Great list! I would also love to sit and sip a gin & tonic with Hemingway. I made my list on “Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2015.” Here’s my TTT. Happy reading!

  4. Of course Jane Austen but I suspect I would get on her last nerves, hehe. I would also like to meet Charles Dickens, so we can converse about society. Shoot I think I will just have a party for Victorian/Regency authors.

      1. There is something about his pen that is agreeable for me, I want to read all his work one day, even reread those I vaguely remember as a child.
