Not the same as favorite novelists or storytellers, but authors you'd read just for the enjoyment of their writing.
Four of my favorites: George Eliot, Joseph Conrad, Thomas Wolfe, Salinger
>>

Salinger's prose is probably his most obvious failing
>>
>>7336754
Conrad is one of those guys that's too elusively unique to even imitate.

my sides, this is almost as cringeworthy as the ending to Heart of Darkness

Faulkner, John Hawkes, William Gaddis, William H. Gass, Gertrude Stein and William T. Vollman.

P good, love me some William G. Where should I start with Hawkes?
>>
>>7337384
Berserk

Say what you want about the gal, the Making of Americans is a beautiful tragedy. It is one of the few books that I enjoy that is an artistic failure but somehow immensely satisfying to read.

>>7337384
You can read Hawkes chronologically, that's how I started. The Cannibal is a good starting place. If not, The Lime Twig or Beetle Leg. Save Blood Oranges for when you are more familiar with his prose.

>>7337095
>Gertrude Stein
Top Brekkek.

>>
>>7337591
Start with the Heart of Darkness.
I read Youth too, a short story of his, and Lord Jim, a novel. I liked them all, but Jim was not as good as the Heart.

Gotta read Nostromo too.

Haven't read the meme yet, but I like the others.

Who's Gertrude Stein?
>>
>>7337581
Be nice to gertie
>>7337637
She was a modernist writer, loved as an expat and was intimately involved with all kinds of literature and art. Picasso painted her and Hemingway encouraged her to publish The Making of Americans, which Ford Maddox Ford eventually did (and regretted). It got picked up by Dalkey Archive a few years ago.

Unfortunately most of her stuff is unbearably pretentious and some of the worst parts of modernism. I myself don't know why I enjoy reading her writing; something about the reptitive nature of her sentence structure is very aesthetically pleasing to read. Pick up Autobiography or read some of her published letters to see what I'm talking about.
