I am looking for suggestions for new authors to read. Past favorites include Richard Russo, John Irving, Nancy Thayer, Anne Rivers Siddons, and Tana French.

If anyone is familiar with any of these authors and would like to offer additional suggestions, that would be wonderful!

Here are two new authors I have enjoyed:

Scott Cheshire. His first novel is High as the Horses' Bridles.

Emily St. John Mandel. Her third novel is Station Eleven.

These are young talents; I expect great things of both of them.

Rex Stout. His novels featuring detective Nero Wolfe and his 'man of action' Archie Goodwin are really run to read.

They are the only books I've ever read which are sometimes laugh out loud funny. Archie and Wolfe are a hoot.

Yes, Mandel proved how talented she is with Station Eleven! Now I want to read her other works.

Naomi Novik's Temeraire series of Regency England at war with Napoleon...with dragons! There are 8 so far, another one coming in the spring.

I also loved her fantasy Uprooted. I've read all of these since early December.

I like Dave Eggers, especially "The Circle" - good book, dark and interesting book.
