Hardy Boys: Rejected Manuscript



McSweeney's has a wonderful article entitled "Re: Hardy Boys Manuscript," where a Hardy Boys editor replies to an author who submitted a book for consideration.

Page 57: Lighthearted exchanges with family members have always been a staple of the series. We are having trouble, however, with Aunt Gertrude "tying a few on" and playfully commenting that Frank is "a little light in the loafers." On that note, Frank's adamant attempt to persuade Chet Morton that it is entirely normal for boys to skinny-dip together and his persistent requests for help applying sunblock are probably out of bounds. Question: When did Frank develop a lisp?
