Where Would You Go?

The Guardian's Lisa Allardice asks an interesting question -- if literary time travel was a possibility, what writers would you go see?

Read the column and the responses here.

My first thoughts were to visit Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe...must be leaning toward a little suspense today. Then Mark Twain came to mind. J.R.R. Tolkien. Beatrix Potter. The possibilities!

I think visiting Mark Twain would be at the top of my list.

I also think I'd like to be at the Algonquin Round Table when Dorothy Parker was there.

And last, but not least, I wouldn't mind a palaver with Arthur Conan Doyle.

Oh I'd visit Edward Gorey for sure, and Norman Lindsay, and Christopher Morley! :) .... among others.
