How Shame Can Lead
To Good Storytelling

"What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story."
--F. Scott Fitzgerald, in Love of the Last Tycoon: A Western, an unfinished novel published after his death. We've referred to him only glancingly in the past (here and here), both times in reference to his infamous remark about how there are no second acts in American lives.

Amazing that you can take time to read and comment from the road. Enjoy the rest of your trip, T.
