Stephen Elliot Hunt earned his M.A. in Writing at Johns Hopkins University. He is the author of the not-as-yet published novel, Moving at the Speed of Ed. This letter is from his unpublished collection, My Interesting Life in the Suburbs. The editors at Atticus Review were going to reject this extra lengthy letter, but in his query, he closed with "I know you hate Franzen too." It was that punchy touch that made us wince and acquiesce to his demands. We're not positive it's fiction, either.
