orwell, without a doubt. i guess sylvia plath could have written less poetry too.
The Picture of Dorian Gray (awesome book), and that's your lot?
If there was ever a case for literal resurrection, this is it.
Got loads of newspaper columns though I suppose.
Only 6 proper novels over quite a long period.
The French Lieutentant's Woman
hurry the hell up
also Carson McCullers - was on a good run and then got all sick and stuff.
I really like 'Indecision'. And I like his essays a lot. What does he do with his time?
but then I think, some of them are so similar to others that perhaps if he had written more then he would have started repeating himself and that would make his work seem less special.
The Bone People. As such it is impossible to say how she would have fared across a larger bibliography, but that book was really good and I would want to read more.
seven and half novels, one book of non-fiction and collaborated on a few other odds and ends
Oops, sorry, I meant Bohumil Hrabal. He was actually very prolific by the look of his completed works in Czech, but I wish someone would get on and translate some more into English. Too Loud a Solitude is probably my favourite novel of all time - there's something about the dry Czech sense of humour in the face of appalling circumstances which just makes for an incredible read.
I have the first book of his three-part biography (written by him from the perspective of his wife) but held off reading it until the others were released which, as far as I'm aware, they never have been.
wish he'd written more non-genre fiction.
I wish Nick Cave would pen something to rival and The Ass Saw The Angel
but Bunny Munroe didn't sound my thing at all, so more southern gothic would be great to me.
(and tempted to put Bernardo Soares to be a clever dick).
like, another 10 volumes of dubliners before ulysses and finnegans would be nice pal
Salinger only wrote one novel as well didn't he?
I think that was for the best though- 'Catcher' is one of my favourite novels, but his short fiction can be really self-indulgent at times. 'To Esme With Love and Squalor' is always great though.
Though it's technically a short story and a novella compiled, I think.
He's got a few nice short stories, 'The Laughing Man' is a particular favourite of mine.
I like his innocent take on love in that.
