Heller/Exley

Posted to WritersAndGenres




If you want an article on Joseph Heller, I could do one. I have a pretty good biography of him. However, it'd have to wait until Christmas break (at which point I'll probably be getting cabin fever wishing I had something to do). There's also another sortof oddball writer named Frederick Exley, who only ever wrote one good book, "A Fan's Notes," which was part of a trilogy (one part of which did so dismally that it's out of print). I could write a bit about him as well.
Eventually, maybe the guy that wrote "Confederacy of Dunces." Which brings up: I also think it might be interesting to do a section on Southern literature, since it's generally considered a separate genre.
