Art Matters Read by Zoe

Zoë liked this work of scholarship. I basically had to borrow the book from her.

In this week’s episode, I talk with Vanessa Blakeslee about Robert Paul Lamb’s Art Matters: Hemingway, Craft, and the Creation of the Modern Short Story. Five years in, TDO finally devotes a show to Hemingway, and Bob’s discussion of Hemingway’s craft is profoundly illuminating to how effectively extraordinary Hemingway’s aesthetics were. I somehow manage not to tell the story how in my Purdue years, my roommates and I dubbed the more rustic of our two bathrooms as The Ernest Hemingway Memorial toilet, with a lot of great photos of Hem in it.
