My favourite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Ursula Le Guin and Mervyn Peake.
I also like Mark Twain, Lewis Carroll, George Orwell, Arthur Ransome, Beatrix Potter, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams and A. A. Milne (although it would have been more considerate of Milne not to use his son’s real name in the published version of the books).
A few individual titles, by other authors, that I particularly like:
Fight Club (Chuck Palahniuk)
A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess)
Lark Rise to Candleford (Flora Thompson)
A Pale View of Hills (Kazuo Ishiguro)
To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee)
The Lorax (Dr Seuss).
My favourite artists are Hieronymus Bosch, M. C. Escher, W. Heath Robinson and Zdzisław Beksiński.
