Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Man, I hate to sound like a broken record, but there was a lot of great stuff to read in olden times. Look at this list of the best books of the 1940s. Just look at it.
From Orwell’s 1984 at the top to Faulkner’s Spotted Horses at No. 97, the decade was full of memorable, lasting books that put our 21st century oeuvre to shame. They had Albert Camus, Arthur Miller, Evelyn Waugh, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, C.S. Lewis (I’m just going down the list here), Robert Penn Warren, Steinbeck, Carson McCullers, Graham Greene, Richard Wright, and on and on and on.
We have… Franzen?
Honestly, wha’ happened?!
