4. John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck may be most famous for his innovative novel Of Mice and Men (which has recently been adapted into a Broadway play starring James Franco, Chris O'Dowd and Leighton Meester). However, I first stumbled upon a touching letter the author wrote to his son before reading any of his texts. After reading his incredibly raw and emotional message about love, I already had an inkling that I would fall just as hard for his amazing works.
