Literary Homes and Gardens
Ever wondered about the literary connections of a particular state? I’ve only ever thought of the question when I lived in California, that land so easily dismissed by East Coasters as the home of choice of movie stars and nouveaux riches. A Sunday Times article by Alan Bisbort surveys the state of Connecticut through its literary real estate. Bisbort even calls Connecticut “a Land of Canaan for writers.” (Get it? Get it?) At any rate, among writers who have owned homes there are F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hellen Keller, Maxwell E. Perkins and Thornton Wilder.
