Nathaniel Hawthorne and Herman Melville. Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky are bit better than both though.

Melville? Seriously!? Without a doubt Moby Dick is the absolute worst thing I have ever read. I mean Catcher in the Rye was shit but at least it had the good grace to be short. Moby Dick was a monstrous rambling jumble of wordiness that certainly captured the essence of sitting in a whaling vessel for months on end with nothing to do. What a bag of turds.

George RR Martin just because his "a song of ice and fire" novel's are some of the best I have ever read and by far the best from an American author.

herman melville; sherwood anderson; john dos passos; william faulkner; saul bellow; nathanael west . . .

love me some david foster wallace and william gaddis, too.

vonnegut is overrated. he's an okay introduction to postmodernist lit but pretty light on substance.

I don't know who the best american writers are but there are so many books in our house while I was growing up. I started with novels by Harold Robins then got hooked up with western stories by Lois L'amour then science fictions by Isaac Asimov then James Michener and Robert Ludlum. I have read so many books by American authors but I forgot their names. I lost interest with books when I started working.
