Max Shulman was a writer in the 50s who died in 1988. I know hardly anything else about him yet – but will find out more. But i did come across this ingenious short story this week – which you just HAVE to read if you’ve not already done so.
LOVE IS A FALLACY from The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (first published in 1951)
i remember doing a course in logic at uni and being totally befuddled after a very short space of time. if only i’d read this story – so much more would have made sense. It is quite amazing how much people fall into the logical traps so perfectly illustrated by this story – and i’m talking just as much about Christians as anyone else (which is actually quite embarrassing, not least because i know i’m not immune).
