BROMANCE

I’ve just been introduced to a new word…. it’s awesome.  “Bromance.” Is a literary category of best guy pals…Here are some great examples….

Darcy and Bingley (from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice): Frodo and Sam (from the Lord of the Rings series): Theo and Boris (from Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch): Harry and Ron (from Harry Potter ): Sherlock and Dr Watson…and Hemingway and Fitzgerald (from Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast): wherein Fitzgerald confided to Hemingway that Zelda complained his penis was too small. Hemingway actually accompanied him to the bathroom considered the comment, then reassured F Scott it was definitely a good size. If that’s not friendship, we don’t know what is!
