I'm twenty-two and have been writing on and off for ten years (although mostly 'off'.) I'm studying Social Sciences through the Open University and have a mild addiction to Polo Mints.
It's on Private. It's staying there.
My favourite Authonomy writers/books include: Siv Nilsen's 'Saga' and Jenni James' 'The Northanger Affect' - so anybody wanting their name up in lights like theirs, you now know what you have to do.
I love the work of Kurt Vonnegut, for its sheer ingenuity.
I love Hunter S. Thompson for his language.
I love the poems of Allen Ginsberg and I don't need a reason.
I love Salinger's voice, and Fitzgerald's eye and Steinbeck's rasping detail.
I love Chabon's sense of humour and Bukowski's horrid realism.
Mix and Match those factors and you have the recipe for my perfect book.
