Literary Fashionables

On Style and Letters

In homage to Fashion Week in New York, this week at the Rumpus, we're devoting a post each day on the blog to celebrating two beloved writers who also demonstrated exquisite personal style and decorum. Thus far, we've got Samuel Beckett and Gertrude Stein, Susan Sontag and George Plimpton, William Burroughs and Joan Didion.
