Padgett Powell /// You & Me
If Beckett and Pinter are the knee-jerk comparisons here, it may bear mentioning that while those hapless 20th-century actor-props were waiting for someone to tell them what to do, Powell’s dudes are hoping the land itself may one day join their conversation. Also, is the U.K. really so grammatically uptight that it needed a different title?

Padgett Powell /// You & Me

If Beckett and Pinter are the knee-jerk comparisons here, it may bear mentioning that while those hapless 20th-century actor-props were waiting for someone to tell them what to do, Powell’s dudes are hoping the land itself may one day join their conversation. Also, is the U.K. really so grammatically uptight that it needed a different title?

  1. bmichael answered: Doesn’t it depend on context? You and I or you and me could both be grammatical. One is subjective, the other objective.
  2. misterhippity answered: "You & I" is not more grammatically correct than "You & Me." It depends the sentence context: subject or object? In a title, you can’t tell.
