Crime and Punishment. Re-reading it with my book club. I forgot just how likeable Raskolnikov is.

I rarely have the time to sit down with a book, but for the last week I've been slowly making my way through "Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing" by Anya Von Bremzen.

It's fucking hilarious.

This is for Gina, the Official Prose Laureate of SLS Forums, who came to mind when I read this. It's a 1934 job application as a screenwriter by Robert Pirosh, who was hired and went on to write for the Marx Brothers. 

Dear Sir:

I like words. I like fat buttery words, such as ooze, turpitude, glutinous, toady. I like solemn, angular, creaky words, such as straitlaced, cantankerous, pecunious, valedictory. I like spurious, black-is-white words, such as mortician, liquidate, tonsorial, demi-monde. I like suave "V" words, such as Svengali, svelte, bravura, verve. I like crunchy, brittle, crackly words, such as splinter, grapple, jostle, crusty. I like sullen, crabbed, scowling words, such as skulk, glower, scabby, churl. I like Oh-Heavens, my-gracious, land's-sake words, such as tricksy, tucker, genteel, horrid. I like elegant, flowery words, such as estivate, peregrinate, elysium, halcyon. I like wormy, squirmy, mealy words, such as crawl, blubber, squeal, drip. I like sniggly, chuckling words, such as cowlick, gurgle, bubble and burp.

I like the word screenwriter better than copywriter, so I decided to quit my job in a New York advertising agency and try my luck in Hollywood, but before taking the plunge I went to Europe for a year of study, contemplation and horsing around. 

I have just returned and I still like words. 

May I have a few with you?

Robert Pirosh
