Aside From George Orwell, Most Americans Don't Give a Shit About English Novelist

Literary novelist. Not Agatha Christie or Rowlings, or mystery commercial writers.......Waugh is passe and forgotten, as is Greene....Look for that matter Capote, Vidal, Mailer, and Vonnegut, Roth are barely holding on here, but not so Orwell. By George, he's got it.

GASP, you typed the name that is unmentionable nowadays (Rowling).

Loved Agatha Christie growing up as well as P.G. Wodehouse.

I bet Austen has outsold Orwell in recent years in the U.S.. Tolkien too, if he fits your literary category.
