Forbes Tastemakers

“It is common to think the world is becoming increasingly illiterate and inattentive,” reports Leah Hoffmann in Forbes Magazine. “At the same time, truly interesting and original literature continues to be published–and not all of it is languishing in the sale bins.”

Who are the ten authors dubbed “tastemakers,” that is, “writers whose work is having the greatest impact on our culture?” J.M. Coetzee, Don DeLillo, Joan Didion, Dave Eggers, Jonathan Safran Foer, Stephen King, Elmore Leonard, Philip Roth, J.K. Rowling, Zadie Smith.
