It was on this day in 1935 that Congress approved funding for President Franklin Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration, known as the WPA, a program designed to put unemployed Americans back to work. By the time the WPA was dissolved in 1943, it had employed more than 8.5 million people, working on 1.4 million projects. Another branch of the WPA was its arts programs, collectively known as "Federal One," which included the Federal Writers' Project and the Federal Theater Project.

The main occupation of the Fe ...

Mediocrity which succeeds is the norm . . . . Let us hope that posterity, at least, will redeem us." William Styron, in a letter written to Norman Mailer on September 28, 1954; from SELECTED LETTERS OF Norman Mailer It seems that even then the sky was thought to be falling on American fiction.
