To clarify the OP title, that’s female authors, not…oh please yourselves. I’ve decided this year to devote my fiction reading to female authors. I reckoned a concious decision might be interesting in terms of broadening my perspectives on stuff. So far I’ve enjoyed the excellent young SF writer Becky Chambers ‘Wayfarers 1 & 2′ & am currently into Edna O’ Brien’s dark ‘ The Little Red Chairs’, with ‘White Teeth’ by Zadie Smith to follow. I’d appreciate any recommendations from the Massive that fall into the ‘you have GOT to read this’ bracket. I’m already a fan of Ursula Le Guin, Marge Piercy & Kate Atkinson among others but know I’m missing out & loads more, so hit me! Cheers.
