Weird Feeling

Sometimes, I meet people and mention that I’m a scholar of Hispanic literature and come back with “you should read Isabel Allende / Paolo Coelho! These are really good authors!” I have to repress the desire to look around and see who they are talking to.

I get the same feeling when people give me links to WashPo or NYTimes expecting me to take them seriously.

  1. I personally would respond to their suggestions with “okay—you should read X author/book, they’re even better!”

    Like Irlanda. They should all read Irlanda and experience the importance of the unreliable narrator.
