EIGHT YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT
WHAT BETTER day to introduce the 3–D Short Story than D-Day, June 6th?
“D-Day” in 1944 was the date American, British, and other Allied soldiers under the overall direction of General Dwight Eisenhower invaded the European continent to help rescue it from the Nazi menace. The assault changed the face of the war. Within a year the Nazi regime was over, Adolf Hitler dead from a self-inflicted bullet wound in the mouth.
WILL the 3–D Short Story change the literary scene that swiftly? To that extent?
One can hope.
A QUICK NOTE–
We’re back at our book chat blog reviewing the latest hits on today’s literary scene.
Our current book review is of the new Brittany Terwilliger novel The Insatiables. Read it!
Is New Pop Lit about to make some literary history?
We had assumed someone else had written about this– maybe someone has– but it seems that in the answer to our Hemingway-Fitzgerald Trivia Question lies a different take on the relationship between those two giants of American letters. It’s important because the two talents stand today as THE largest personalities dominating the field of American letters– in particular, the novel and short story. Iconic figures.
The new take is this: Ernest Hemingway took some obvious shots at F. Scott Fitzgerald over the years. But what if Fitzgerald had been creating some snarky portrayals of Hemingway, in his fiction, first? This appears to be the case.
We’re readying an explanation of all this. . . .
