Kirk Curnutt on F. Scott Fitzgerald (Archived)

Today's show places Ernest Hemingway alongside one of his artistic contemporaries: F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Part friendship and part rivalry, their complex relationship has all the twists and turns of a good novel about two characters that, at least on the surface, seem vastly different. 

There's some truth to these differences but, like a good story, there's a fair share of fiction.  We sit down with Kirk Curnutt to set the record straight.  During the episode, we draw the distinction between myth and reality to learn more about their lives, their art, and their relationship.
