Warren Adler and the Illusory Nature of Fame
Posted on November 18, 2004
Bestselling author Warren Adler poses four test questions to readers in his latest newsletter. The first question: What do the following have in common? Claude Simon, Elias Canetti, Nelly Sachs, Yasunari Kawbata, Johannes Vilhelm Jensen, Roger Martin DuGard, Jacinto Benavente, and Henrik Pontoppidan.
If you answered that all are were winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature, then you might be able to answer the next three questions that he poses in his interesting article about the illusive nature of celebrity and the transient nature of contemporary fame.
