I am ambivalent about Wilder. The Little House books were much beloved growing up, but knowing more about the treatment of Natives (treaty breaking and genocide) now, and having seen some very valid criticism from people like Dr. Debbie Reese, I just know if I look at them again they will have been visited by the Suck Read more

My dad tried to get me to read the classics—I had the complete Sherlock Holmes, and Booth Tarkington’s Penrod, which was OK, but it was SF that I read by choice.

I think Montgomery might be good for an adult! If you haven’t read the Anne or Emily books, you could start with one of those and see what you think, or read Blue Castle (which is my favorite).

Eh... I don’t know. While I don’t think it’s a “gotcha” question, I do think that it is a question that involves some thought. I think I would have been more offended if her pat response was MLK Jr. or Jesse Jackson or some shit like that because they are names that are low hanging fruit, so to speak. I think her Read more
