Hemingway Sighting in Boston Globe Magazine

0It’s always interesting to see a present day writer being mentioned in the same sentence as Ernest Hemingway. In Sunday’s Boston Globe Magazine, novelist Junot Diaz (Pulitzer Prize winner in 2008 for The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) was featured as one of the Bostonians of the Year. What caught my attention, however, was the following comparison: “his writing combines the muscular economy of Hemingway with the confessional sexual wandering of Philip Roth, studded with the untranslated Spanish of the Dominican barrio.” Pretty descriptive wouldn’t you say? The piece was written by Neil Swidey.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
