On the subject of being happy in academia, I have an article due on September 1. Another one due on October 1. And another one due on January 1. Of course, I’m also writing a book. So yes, I’m happy in academia.
By the way, the article that is due on September 1 is all about mocking Almudena Grandes’s doorstop of a novel titled Frankenstein’s Mother. I’m enjoying the process of writing it immensely. God, I hate that novel.
And the article due on October 1 is about Ana Iris Simon’s novel Feria that created all that scandal in Spain because it ridiculed leftist pieties.
