Books The Heart of the Matter

McSweeney’s has a post up called “Lit 101 Class in Three Lines or Less.” I’m really fond of how the one for The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe manages to fit some literary criticism into its three lines, and also the last line of the 1984 retelling is gold, but, for Christopher’s sake, this is the one that bats it out of the park:
ISHMAEL: I’m existential.
AHAB: Really? Try vengeance.
ISHMAEL: I dig this dynamic. Can we drag it out for 600 pages?
