We'll start with just 4 for now..
  1. Wally Lamb
    All of his books are amazing but I think She's Come Undone is a good novel to begin with.
  2. Margaret Atwood
    The Handmaid's Tale. Phenomenal.
  3. Kate Morton
    If you haven't heard of her yet, you should. I would start with The House at Riverton.
  4. Jonathan Tropper
    Read This is Where I Leave You. Patiently waiting for his next book..
