Nabakov thinking deep thoughts

Shelf Awareness asked me to name my top five authors. This is like asking for my favorite brands of chocolate. How can you narrow it down? Here are some names, off the top of my head:

Edith Wharton, E.B. White, Sharon Kay Penman, Ann Patchett, Stephen King. This list changes every time I try to narrow it down. I also love Vladimir Nabokov. And Anne Tyler. And J.P. Donleavy. And Roald Dahl. And Mary Stewart. And Nora Roberts. And Collette. I am in big trouble.

Can you narrow your list down to five?
