  1. Peter Covino. Terrance Hayes. Oni Buchanan. Dorothy Barresi (in a very earthy way).

  3. I'm gonna take a broader definition of young than the Yale Series and say Peter Pereira and Rebecca Loudon. This is based on writing, though--never met them in person.

  4. I have a little crush on Emily Lloyd. ;)

    Also: Jhumpa Lahiri looks really, really beautiful in certain pictures, doesn't she? See the author photo on the paperback version of INTERPRETER OF MALADIES.

    I think my big crush is Martha Cooley. I really must smooch with her at some point. This must happen.

    I suppose this is my way of confessing that I do, in fact, enjoy fiction a great deal.

  5. I am going to be cliche'

    Dave Eggars.

    I want to write a book like Heartbreaking.

    Plus he understands the pulse of San Fransico better than any other author out there. (I think)

  6. I dunno. I'm gonna have to agree with Em, and add Jeanette Winterson to the mix.

    :p

  7. Aleksandar Hemon, fiction writer, but his writing is pure poetry. Do you know of him? Emigre from Sarajevo. Author of The Question of Bruno & Nowhere Man. The best fiction writer in English for whom it is a second language (his English was rudimentary when he arrived here about 12 years ago) since Joseph Conrad. (Or rather, Nabokov. Is there anyone else I haven't thought of?) Anyway, the guy can't write a boring sentence (Ok, that's what the NY Times book review says on his book jacket, & I agree). He was born in 1964. Does that qualify?

  8. Edwidge Danticat hands downs and Olena Kalytiak Davis if my love is not available. Sad fact: I have a photograph of Edwidge tucked in a book on my writing desk so I can moon over her when I think I write crap. She is stunning.

    Oh and that Jensen boy b/c he wears my glasses.

  9. I'm going with Mark Wunderlich and I'll second Olena Kalytiak Davis. And I keep hearing of this Charlie Jensen guy, but I can't make him out behind those glasses and that naughty smile.

  10. Oh yeah, how could I forget OK Davis?

    Charlie, I might pick her over you....
