  1. Here's a few, but they are based on my personal tastes. I don't know how acclaimed they might be. You have some great authors:
    For Esme - With Love and Squalor by J. D. Salinger; The Turkey Season by Alice Munro; A Voice in the Night by Steven Millhauser; Here We Are by Dorothy Parker. Hemingway, Hawthorne and Melville all have a bunch - not sure I could pick just one.
