    Hi Clattermonger! I was wondering: would you say you mostly read books written by white men simply because you think they’re the best at writing books, or is it because you struggle to find books written by more diverse authors?

      Hi Jesse. For a long time, the only people who could get their books published were white men. (There were exceptions, of course, but not as many as there should have been). Those white men wrote wonderful books that I dearly love, but I know how unfair it is that they were the only people who could get their writing into print.
      I’m making an effort to expand my horizon, to try authors I haven’t read much of, from backgrounds and ethnicities that are different to mine. I will still read plenty of novels by white men, and I’ll still enjoy them, but they will be balanced out by books from women and people of colour. Craig
