Letter: Speaking of Literary Merit
To the Editor:
The recent boatload of letters bearing us back ceaselessly into the American literary canon shared a seeming unfamiliarity with Ernest Hebert’s novels. From the town meeting scene in The Dogs of March, to the charms of Estelle Jordan, the close-to-the-ground living in A Little More Than Kin, and its foreshadowing of Spoonwood, to the chapter “The Gauntlet” in The Old American, Hebert has written treasures.
Those books better frame Hebert’s sassy reassessment of Gatsby.
