From Henry Fielding, Cervantes, P.G. Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh and Mark Twain to, Peter De Vries, Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut, John Kennedy Toole and Terry Southern, to name but a few of the many authors who have attempted that most difficult of genre, the comic novel.
These are just a few of the notable ones who have mastered the genre.
Thus this leads to this month’s iUniverse author challenge which is devoted to the comic novel. Whether you are an established writer or you are yet to a pen a sentence, this challenge is for you.
This months’ challenge is who do you think is the funniest author ever and your reasons why?
To improve your chances of winning, we will be looking for clear, clean content with a sense of originality and creativity in describing why you believe the novelist you choose is the funniest author ever.
