Her name, like the others, lends itself to a pun. That’s why I included her.
However, a lot of people have gotten all up in a snit because they don’t believe she’s worthy of being included alongside Twain, Fitzgerald, and Hemingway. These people seem to think this is some kind of award or praise, but in reality it’s just authors whose names fit easily into puns. I would never knowingly praise Ernest Hemingway.
Note: I’m excluding really obvious stuff like “Punch out John Wilkes Booth” and “Kill baby Hitler,” you know, things that would so severely change history that I’d have to re-take all my history classes.
