Mister Ron's Basement #1091
In 1921, The Authors' League of America published of book of 'the Personal Confessions of Well-known American Authors as to their Literary Beginnings' entitled 'My Maiden Effort.'
Some of these included authors have been featured at times in the Basement, and we are reading their contributions to the collection this week.
Irvin S. Cobb explains how he achieved his first success as a fiction writer due to a bet, and as a bonus, we include his 'recipe' for 'Hog Jowl and Turnip Greens' from 1922.
Time: approx eight and a half minutes
