Literary Top 10: David Peace

The British author David Peace is well known for his novels GB84 and The Damned Utd. His latest book is Tokyo Year Zero. In 2003 he was named as a Best of Young British Novelists by Granta.

From his Literary Top 10 at Pulp.Net:
Author I’d like to nominate for the Nobel Prize for literature:

There should be no prizes, least of all this one. But, if it has to go to someone, it should go to either John le Carré or Ian Rankin.

Deceased author I’d most like to resurrect:

Edgar Allan Poe – to find out how he bleeding died and to warn him what Lou Reed was doing to his work.
