  •  A fine suggestion, as nobody's mentioned her yet (3+ / 0-)

    Your observation is poetic - but still, you found an answer to the question.

    There usually isn't a "greatest" - but whatever someone calls their greatest, is worth at least a look. I just use "best of" lists as if they were window-shopping lists, a treasure trove of names to explore. Though, as with any story, you take the source into account. If the New York Times produced a list of the "Greatest Women Novelists", I'd assume they'd put a bit of thought and research into their selections.

    The other side of the coin is learning more about other Kossacks. It does say something about you, what you consider great.

    Thanks for explaining a bit about Half-Blood Blues. It's a colorful premise, with some darkness mixed in.
