Matt Stewart is hoping to make history this Bastille Day by becoming the first author (“as far as he can tell”) to publish his entire full-length novel via Twitter.
The novel, conveniently titled The French Revolution, “is an epic San Francisco tale exploring the haywire extremes of the French Revolution within the microcosm of a dysfunctional family.”
Stewart, who has written for Instant City and listed for McSweeney’s, says that he wants to “try a social experiment—see how the world reacts to a long-form tale told in snippets.”
So will it work? Stewart starts his experiment today, follow and find out.
