An interesting connection in today’sWall Street Journal between John Dos Passos and the Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano…Galeano died today. Galeano’s Memory of Fire is compared thematically and structurally to the works of Dos Passos.
The 3rd Biennial John Dos Passos Society Conference was held June 20-22, 2018 at the Geographical Society of Lisbon. It was a marvelous success. Thanks everyone! For more information about the Society, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“About style—I think that reading people in order to get ‘style’ from them is rather soft-headed. Your style is like the color of your hair or the cut of your pants—half accident, half act of God—to take thought to change or improve it results usually in rank affectation.”
