I love reading the essays of EB White, DFW, Michael Chabon, Joan Didion, Philip Lopate, Calvin Trillin, Annie Dillard, Virgnia Woolf, etc. in large part because I admire the elegance and beauty of their prose. I admire the craft. Please recommend more great prose stylists I may not have read.
I'm especially interested in contemporary writers and writers who specialize in the essay form. Not interested in writers who may write about interesting topics but who are merely competent writers (Malcolm Gladwell for example).
