Om mig

Writer, New Yorker, feminist, fangirl, geek, tea addict, historian, cook.

I am trying to read more by authors of color and about people of color. I love historical fiction, character-driven sci-fi and fantasy, and poetry.

My current reading project is to make my way though everything in the St. John's College reading list and the Columbia College core curriculum. Books (and supporting materials, usually criticism) I read as part of this project are shelved as the great western canon.

This thing here, which looks like a wooden club, is actually several pieces of particular wood cunningly put together in a certain way so that the whole thing is sprung, like a dance floor. It’s for hitting cricket balls with. If you get it right, the cricket ball will travel two hundred yards in four seconds, and all you’ve done is give it a knock like knocking the top off a bottle of stout, and it makes a noise like a trout taking a fly... [He clucks his tongue to make the noise.] What we’re trying to do is to write cricket bats, so that when we throw up an idea and give it a little knock, it might... travel ... [He clucks his tongue again and picks up the script.] Now, what we’ve got here is a lump of wood of roughly the same shape trying to be a cricket bat, and if you hit a ball with it, the ball will travel about ten feet and you will drop the bat and dance about shouting "Ouch!" with your hands stuck into your armpits. This isn’t better because someone says it’s better, or because there’s a conspiracy by the MCC to keep cudgels out of Lords. It’s better because it’s better.
—Tom Stoppard, The Real Thing
