If the Ink Trails series could continue as long as there are famous and forgotten Michigan authors to profile, it could continue for decades.
The latest illustration of this point was a batch of names provided by readers at an event in Fenton last week. The total catch was four names not covered to date in the Ink Trails series.
One to highlight now is Edmund Love — a writer of sufficient national note that he merited a New York Times obituary upon his death in 1990. I’d never heard of him.
The Times puts Subways are for Sleeping at the top of his list of works, no doubt because it became a Broadway production.
Michiganders will recognize a location in another of his works — The Situation in Flushing. Flushing was Love’s birthplace in 1912.
Time to check out this author’s works.
