Welcome once again to C-Spandemonium! You may know it better as "James Whorton, Jr.'s C-Spandemonium!" but sometimes we write a quick one on our own while we wait for Mr. Whorton's next communication. So yesterday on C-Span 2 I saw the author Nathan Englander state that he thinks of Flannery O'Connor as a Russian writer. It reminded me of something! At the Decatur Book Festival one year, I attended a panel on which sat one George Singleton. Someone in the audience asked Mr. Singleton to name his favorite Southern writer, and he said "Gogol." What does all this mean? Something, possibly!
