Great Writing of the Day: “The Suetonius of Sleaze”

The Suetonius of Sleaze

As a writer, sometimes I just have to sit back and marvel at the appropriateness of a turn of phrase. The juxtaposition of the famed ancient Roman historian with the modern sleaze of Times Square; the alliterative nickname, complete with allusion to Ruthian “Sultan of Swat” and rich with the aural joy of simply pronouncing “Suetonius”; all work together to create a layered and entertaining experience that passes by in less than three seconds as a throwaway parenthetical.

The fact that it comes in a Time Magazine review of a Tarantino movie only makes it more enjoyable!
