Having lived in Durham, . for a few years, like the writer of this piece, I thought to comment and add a few names that Hemingway would not have known in his day yet I feel the same way about, although I have little care whether anyone else really likes them or not. This is the
good thing about not yet being “named” a classic, although each of these authors have several that are that. In
10 seconds of thought, a short list forms, something by: John Le Carre, Mark Helprin, Barbara Kingsolver, increasingly, and Cormac McCarthy.
