Going on the Account: Tied to the Charts

Saw this in passing about Margaret Atwood being called out by Ursula K. Le Guin, and wondered why Ms. Atwood might be so touchy about that.  It’s kind of late in the game to try and spin how people should see your work, and as Ms. Le Guin points out it doesn’t do you any favors taking it that way.

Speaking of writers not being able to get away from their CV, the following happened to Susan and I over the weekend while we walked uptown from Little Italy:

 

Susan:  The subway should be down this street, right?

I:  Yep, that’s it.

Susan:  Which way do we go?

I:  We veer to port.

Susan:  You know you don’t say ‘left’ and ‘right’ anymore, don’t you?

 

Nope, you can’t deny your work…
