A Real Conversation

“I saw a photo of your book at the MLA expo. Congratulations! Which one of those books is yours?”

“Erm. The one with my name on the cover.” 

I never know if people are being passive aggressive or simply bad conversationalists.

  1. Doesn’t the statement “I saw a photo of your book” indicate they know which book it is? That they saw your name and connected it to you? Otherwise, how would they know they were even talking to the right person?


  2. I think a lot of your readers do not know your real name. It is not really easy to find it; at least it took me some effort.
