Esquire’s Debut and Dos Passos

Esquire Debut

John Dos Passos, along with Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Auslander, Ring Lardner Jr, and Dashiell Hammett, contributed to the debut issue of Esquire magazine in 1933. In those days, novelists could really make a buck with magazine work. There was a path to solvency and even profit. Much harder today to get regular magazine gigs.

The third volume of the new series of Hemingway’s collected letters is out, containing letters to John Dos Passos. I love reading the letters grandfather wrote to Hem. The letters JDP wrote to my Mom are my favorite.
