Easy, Amy Hemple. But I’d amend that to be simply “favorite author” no gender qualifier needed.

Rarely do you find novels Down and Out in Paris and London or his essays. I say that because, as I'm striving to get my own work done--aware that it may end up at someone's yard sale--there's always that unnecessary fear that I may not be remembered or limited to one book in the culture's memory. May I hear your thoughts on this?
Damn, once you’re dead you’re going to be a very pissed-off ghost. I’d like to think Orwell is beyond ego-attachment to his backlist. Me, personally, I’d rather be remembered for the moments of happiness I helped occur in the world. Writing should be more like ‘play’ so please don’t weigh it down with lofty expectations about immortality. Sorry to ramble, you asked.
