Suzanne del Gizzo on "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen"

Happy Holidays from One True Podcast! 

Enjoy our first Holiday Spectacular as we ring in the season with Suzanne del Gizzo, scholar and editor of The Hemingway Review, to talk about Hemingway's decidedly un-festive short story, "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen."

What was Hemingway getting at with that title?  Why would he write such a macabre story? How can that story speak to us at the holidays?  We find out in this interview as del Gizzo explains the story, the classic carol, and Hemingway’s grand design.  Plus, we've sent a Hemingway-appropriate Christmas gift to our guest!

A special thanks to the University of Evansville Choirs and Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Chun-Ming Chen.
