AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A little over a year ago, Lionel Shriver delivered the opening address at the Brisbane 'Writers Festival, where she notoriously derided political correctness and defended the practice of cultural appropriation by white writers. A little over a year ago, I wrote a blog post responding to what she'd said. I wrote it while I was walking to the train station, while I was on the train, and while I was walking home from the train station. I was angry, but I somehow managed to temper my anger.'
