TWITTERATURE: The World's Greatest Books, Now Presented in Twenty Tweets or Less (Penguin Books, 2009)

Emmett Rensin and Alex Aciman were students at the University of Chicago when they wrote TWITTERATURE in their dorm room, reimagining great works of literature as a series of tweets from the protagonist. Alexander’s work has appeared in The New York Times and the New York Sun. He would like to be a writer, own a pair of John Lobb shoes, and live out his days reading and writing with his brothers in the Mediterranean basin. While Emmett’s dream is to be a sea captain, he has settled on a mastery of card magic and shaggy-dog jokes, and penning the Great American Novel.
