    Margaret Atwood, i’m late to the fan club, having only really caught on to her in the past 5 years or so. I was aware of her forever but thought her books would be “boring”. I know. Stupid. Thus, I have loads of Atwood to read and discover for the first time and I quite like that. Michael Crummey’s books are really good, as are Miriam Toews, Ann-Marie MacDonald. Heather O’Neill. I read a Robertson Davies and a Mordecai Richler last year for the first time and enjoyed them so I will be reading more of those as well.
