sweetheart, etc. // staff writer for BWDR
obviously this is about grad school, but specifically it is about the moment in grad school in which one of my professors made a big show of having to end class early because she had to go speak at a consortium or something and I said, "what are you speaking on?" and her face got very severe and she said, "excuse me?" and I said, "what are you speaking about... at the event...?" and she blinked twice and said, "I don't have to tell you that."
not to be like "I read books also" but I spent much of this thinking about Nicholson Baker and Jane Allison who have also written around this type of circuitous, image-based quote unquote narrative. don't see what's not to like - made the internal clock stall and stop in the best possible way.
