I'm trying to think of a list of male authors who are legendary for being not only great writers, but also Men, in the womanizing, no-nonsense, rough-and-tumble boozers sense of the word. I need people who everyone will immediately recognize as a kind of rough-around-the-edges icon for male writers. Guys like Hemingway and Bukowski, for instance. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
The womanizing thing is far from the most important thing in my description. My character is looking for tough guy authors to emulate.
