"The Hollow Men" from Thomas Wolfe

I am honored to have this piece chosen for American Illustration 28


  1. The pavement finally halts all, stops all, answers all. It is the American pavement, Admiral Drake, our universal city sidewalk, a wide, hard stripe of grey-white cement, blocked accurately with dividing lines. It is the hardest, coldest, cruellest, most impersonal pavement in the world: all of the indifference, the atomic desolation, the exploded nothingness of one hundred million nameless "Greens" is in it.

  2. Fabulous! My favorite writing in American literature.
