Edited by Julius Wets Friend, Double Dealer, “The National Magazine of the South”, was one of the most important Little Magazines ever published. Aside from being the first of its kind to be published in the south, it demonstrated an almost uncanny ability to discover and foster unknown young writers and poets who would go on to establish a national reputation. These include Hemingway (his first two national appearances), Faulkner (4 very early appearances), Hart Crane, Robert Penn Warren, Thornton Wilder, Jean Toomer and others. Hoffman devotes considerable attention to this important and scarce magazine. This issue contains a two page contribution entitled “A Divine Gesture”, by Ernest Hemingway (Hanneman C85), his first appearance in a national magazine.
