June ’10’s ML Literary Dirtbag

July 7, 2010

Clearly, between Soccer Madness 2010 and the holiday weekend, I dropped the ball on nominating last month’s Literary Dirtbag award. As tempting as it was to give the award to the entire cast of Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust, I managed to narrow it down to one: Tod Hackett, the daydreaming rapist. Here’s a quote, if you’re unconvinced:

“If only he had the courage to wait for her some night and hit her with a bottle and rape her.”

Congratulations Tod! I’m glad Faye gave you the Heisman.
