Currently reading – BUtterfield 8, by John O’Hara, 1935. Born in 1905, O’Hara was a bestselling novelist of his time and a prolific short story writer some people hold to blame for creating the “New Yorker” style of short story. This novel is based on the true, tabloid story of a socialite’s death, and it was adapted into a 1960 movie with a luminous Elizabeth Taylor. O’Hara died in 1970, and since he refused to allow permission for his short stories to be anthologized, most students of literature do not come into contact with his work.
