The Secret Life of Tux Munce
Tux Munce is a fictional Wilmington writer who wrote only one novel, Willow Run, about the infamous lynching that occurred at Prices Corner in 1903. Munce interacts and writes about real literary figures who once lived near Wilmington, Delaware like Harry Kemp, and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. He also writes about local real life people like Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Pauline Young, Weeping Joe Smoleki, 3 Gun Wilson, and Charles and Eleanor Bostwick, as well as local jazz singers Daisy Winchester and Crash Peyton. He writes about his travels and adventures in places like Argentina and Haiti during the 1930s. Being a fictional writer enables Tux Munce to encounter characters who were depicted in novels written by Wilmington's novelists from the early 20th century like John Biggs, Christopher Ward and Charles Wertenbaker, as well as by Wilmington author J. Saunders Redding.
