Kate Braverman, Who Wrote of Women on the Margins, Dies at 70.  (The New York Times, 10/18/2019)
She harbored no doubts that her fiction had elevated her into an exalted place in literature beside men like Saul Bellow, Joseph Conrad, Philip Roth, Ernest Hemingway and Norman Mailer. 
“I should not be compared to other women,” she said in 2006 in an interview on “San Francisco/unscripted,” a local television show. “I do not write or live like a woman. I’m a complete outlaw in my sensibility and in my demand that women be given total access to the page, which they are not.”

10 volumes of Saul Bellow

20 volumes of Joseph Conrad

10 volumes of Ernest Hemingway.  (According to LINKcat, Madison Central owns 134 books by and (mostly) about Hemingway.)

8 volumes of Norman Mailer

23 volumes of Philip Roth, from The Anatomy Lesson to Zuckerman Unbound.
