Oscar Wilde had a pretty interesting/controversial life.

i need to read some Oscar Wilde. i don't exactly want to jump into Dorian Grey right now, but i know that this guy's wordplay and prose was as good as anybody else's in history. maybe start with some of his short stories.

Hunter S. Thompson would be at the top of my list. Jack Kerouac and Ken Kesey would also make good biographical research papers. All three authors make appearances in Tom Wolfe's The Electric KoolAid Acid Test.

The Importance of Being Earnest was my introduction into Wilde.

Dorian was the first of his work that I ever read. He's definitely one of those rare talents. I want to start reading some of his plays soon.

George Orwell

Very controversial man.

F. Scott Fitzgerald is also another interesting author to write about.
