On the David Gilmour dust-up.

**********************

But there’s an important line missing from the first paragraph: The piece should start with this quotation from a Don DeLillo novel:

“DON’T YOU REALIZE THAT AS LONG AS YOU HAVE TO SIT DOWN TO PEE, YOU’LL NEVER BE A DOMINANT FORCE IN THE WORLD?”

    So what if Professor Gilmore doesn’t like female writers? Big deal, I don’t like sentient, wide ranging, profound, thought provoking, hard working, iconoclastic, cliche free, fad hating, singular writers, that make me look an incompetent idiot. I wouldn’t read them, either….

    I wonder if blind tests – figuratively of course – would show that some female writers are very difficult to distinguish from males?

    I think of Jhumpa Lahiri.

    The first thing I ever read by her – without knowing she was a she – was a short story in the New Yorker. I also noticed this in parts of her later work.

    Thoughts?

    Bill: I’m about to read my first Lahiri novel (I’ve read short stories). I’ll mull over what you’ve suggested while reading that…
