100 Male Writers

So a few years ago I created a post about 100 Women Writers I wanted to read overtime. It was based on a video by JeansBookishThoughts, and I thought I would join that train. However, I’ve realised I’ve read a lot of female authors, but not many male authors.

To counterweight the balance I thought I would create a list of 100 Male Writers to read before I die.
