For most writers, the word “collection” is used to describe their latest book of short stories or poems. However, there are some authors who engage in the kind of collecting more commonly associated with fine art or, say, Pokémon cards.
Why do these writers’ collections fascinate us? Well, we like to think of it as the literary equivalent of “Stars — They’re Just Like Us!” More often than not, we imagine acclaimed authors tucked away for months at a time, subsisting on coffee and typing away. The pedestrian and habitual act of collecting is a welcome reminder of their human quirks.
And what quirks they are! These are the grand, obscure and strange collections of seven authors:
- President Trump will sign an executive order on Tuesday stopping the EPA's plan to limit power plants burning coal.
- Top Democrats are demanding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes remove himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the election.
- The mayor of London has urged politicians in the European Union not to "punish" Britain for the decision to leave the European Union, stating a "bad Brexit" would hurt the EU too.
- Samsung announced plans to refurbish and sell some of the 4.3 million explosive Galaxy Note7 phones it recalled last year📱🔥
