Dark Laughter

A novel by

Dark Laughter was Anderson's only bestseller during his lifetime. It dealt with the new sexual freedom of the 1920s, a theme also explored in Many Marriages and later works. The influence of James Joyce's Ulysses, which Anderson had read before writing the 1925 novel, is expressed in this book.

Ernest Hemingway parodied Dark Laughter in "The Torrents of Spring", mocking the pretensions of Anderson's style and characters. Gertrude Stein, his former mentor, objected to Heminway's parody of a writer who had helped him get published, and they had a falling out.
