Sarah's (loose baggy monster) List of Authors

I have decided to select authors that I would like to read more of, but I’m not going to select specific works just yet (or ever, I might just read whatever seems appealing at any given moment). Here are the authors I think look particularly intriguing:
  1. Dawn Powell
  2. G.K. Chesterton (Father Brown mysteries, The Man Who Was Thursday)
  3. John Galsworthy (The Forsyte Saga–I have long been tempted by this)
  4. W. Somerset Maugham (I have a collection of 5 of his novels, so I’ll start there)
  5. Olivia Manning (my library has both The Balkan Trilogy and The Levant Trilogy so I requested them both)
My goal is to read as many as possible, but I'm not going to put a limit (min or max) either way. I figure if I keep my expectations rather low for myself, I can't help but be pleasantly surprised when I manage to complete something!

I am curious about Olivia Manning -- I think LK is going to read her too, so I'll learn a lot from you two.
