My Favorite Authors – Gene Wolfe

10 May

I first experienced Gene Wolfe during my writing courses. In his Book of the New Sun trilogy, Wolfe broke every rule my writing teacher gave us. She had told us that we needed to know the rules before we could break them with purpose. Gene Wolfe had a purpose.

His books are so well thought out, that it doesn’t matter if you’re following the web of flashbacks in the Book of the New Sun or immersed in the world of the unreliable narrator Latro, even if the reader doesn’t know what is going on, they are certain the author does.
