Writing Under the Influence

April 21, 2010

We all know not to drink and drive, but how about taking a slug and then getting behind the pen? Here’s an interesting little list from Lapham’s Quarterly — though I’m not quite sure why the author/editor focusses on Faulkner’s film work in 1936 (Road to Glory??) instead of Absalom, Absalom! or on one of Chandler’s scripts rather than any of his novels. (I mean, hey, you can’t tell me that either of these men weren’t regularly imbibing throughout their whole career, yeah?)

Still, an interesting little connect-the-dots — or prescription list depending on the kind of literary output your aiming for.
