I’m on Team Gatsby

2010 May 12

Have you found yourself arguing the merits of American literature versus Brit Lit, Poe vs. Dickens, Beats vs. the Romantics? Well now, instead of displaying literary sparring worthy of Fitzgerald and Hemingway, you can clearly display your literary allegiances on your sleeve. Novel-T is a t-shirt line that specializes in “jerseys” for authors and other literary icons. The website is divided into two “teams:” American Canon and National Puncs.

They’re clever and fun, and I would definitely wear one (however, not the Prynne one…that would be awkward).

Here’s a few of my favorites:

Whitman

Gatsby (extra points for the awesome fedora)

Dickinson

Alice in Wonderland

The t-shirts are $24.95 and Novel-T donates $1 from every shirt sold to 826NYC and $1 from each Vonnegut and Trout shirt to Doctors Without Borders.

    I would totally wear the Prynne one! Also, I would suggest a writerly softball league, but really, I’m just imagine post-game drinks in these shirts. So let’s skip the game altogether and go right to the most literary bar we can find.
