[B]revity is the soul of wit,” Polonius declared in Hamlet. (Too bad the windbag didn’t practice what he preached.)

Lit140 is where books come to lighten up. As hostess, my mission is to pare the synopsis of every classic work in the whole wide world (plus not-so-classic faves) down to 140 characters or less. It’s quite an undertaking, I know. Fortunately, I have help: my fellow writer Kevin Dwyer has agreed to tend bar and pitch in with some snappy copy.

Happy reading,



p.s. If you want me, you can find me left of center or via email: jure@lit140.com


  1. Hey, guys! I have a request. This may be more up Kevin’s alley than Juré’s, but I’d love to see Joyce’s “Ulysses” twittered. (Sorry, about the quotes around the title; I don’t know how to make italics or underline in Safari, yet.)
