I Can't Believe Tolstoy Wrote a Kid's Book
I came across this fascinating article about famous authors of adult literature on brainpickings.org. Did you know Oscar Wilde, Virginia Wolfe, and James Joyce all wrote children's books? It got me thinking; which of my favorite authors would I like to see write a kid's book? I think James Lee Burke. I would love to see his lyrical prose translated into a children's book, and I am really curious about what he would write since his usual themes are violence and corruption, and he tends to use, shall we say, some very colorful slang. Who would you choose?
