    Austinstar!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks, I knew you'd have some good ones if you showed up!!! Vonnegut might be my very favourite...I favour Steinbeck and Hemingway, but I'd never be able to say "this guy is my fave."

    I believe that Hemingway and Lewis won NOBEL prizes for Literature!!!!!!!!!! I'll have to fact check that though.

    Also, Faulkner and Steinbeck did.

    Faulkner, and Hemingway won Nobel prizes...do you think the Pulitzer is more prestigious?
