"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
I voted that Dan shouts "Yoknapatawpha!" whenever anyone shouts "Reivers!" in Firefly. That has to be it. I shout "Yoknapatawpha!" whether anyone else shouts "Reivers!" or not, and not just in Firefly. "Yoknapatawpha!" is a word for every occasion.
Why is Dan's query letter (124) not on the shark website? The interview mentioned the letter.?
Reivers? I ain't going anywhere near where there are reivers.
I tried shouting "Yoknapatawpha!" once, but I sprained my larynx. When I was teaching American Literature, I used to say "Yabba-dabba-doo" instead, which always made my students laugh.I do always think of Faulkner when they mention the reavers on Firefly, though. The movie of The Reivers is quite good. It has Steve McQueen!
