How will the man from Dream City keep it real?
Being multi-ethnic you know I'm drawn to discourse about ethnically or "racially" constructed identity and multiplicities there of. The other day a girl attempted to make me feel silly for admitting that I liked a writer as "pop" by which I take to mean, successful and known both in popular culture as well as literary circles, as Zadie Smith. Naturally, I remained unfettered, but as I post this lecture from a recent NYPL evening I am all grins.
Thanks to James Vincente for making me aware of this link.
