Day 20: Wham!

I am in New York City today, so the day's post will be succinct, but nicely astringent.

John Dos Passos, after reading Ernest Hemingway's Across the River and Into the Trees: "Hemingway's story (the parts I read) brought out the goosepimples in a different way. How can a man in his senses leave such bullshit on the page?"

Much more about the writers' relationship can be found in Clara Juncker's "Friends, Enemies, Writers: Dos Passos and Hemingway"
