Loc: Piedmont Region of Virginia, U...
Can't believe I'd forgotten the literary roman à clef...thanks tsuwm!
Well, I can't make entwicklungsroman with seven letters, but only six instead:
You'd have to have "en" in the same row with "lung" and a space before"roman." You'd play your "s" between lung and roman, and your "twick" before "lung," given the five spaces needed after "en."
Well, pretty stunning play, but it would have been by far better to have used seven letters--there's no common noun twi, nor is there a common noun for oman. Drat! I was so in hopes that in Oman there was at least one bit of brick-a-brack known as the oman that tourists brought back home.
