I was looking at a copy of How to Cook a Wolf, and I couldn't get over how attractive M.F.K. Fisher was. I'm talking super hot. It's not as if I expect all authors to be bookish and odd looking, but hotness isn't something I really think of when I think of literary genius. Not that literary genius isn't hot all by itself... well, you know what I mean. Anyways, I think I burnt out my Google image search looking at author photos. So here's a partial list of what I found. These authors make reading look really good.
MFK Fisher: Do you see what I'm talking about? Gorgeous!
Jhumpa Lahiri: Stunning.
F. Scott Fitzgerald: You must be a hottie if
Tom Hiddleston plays you in a movie.
Gillian Flynn: Super hot book, made into a super hot
movie, written by a super hot author.
Colson Whitehead: He must have given up a career as a
model in order to write books. I'm glad he did... for the most part.
Jessica Mitford: Look at that! She's practically a pinup!
Tao Lin: It might just be the leather jacket talking but, WOW!
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: I just finished Americanah,
and it's just as beautiful as its author.
Karl Ove Knausgard: Here's the bad boy of the bunch!
So, this objectifying of authors is totally subjective. Who did I miss? Who's your author crush? Let me know and I'll post them!
