Well, there’s one way to cheer a gal up during a wrenching experience. In past months, when I’ve been stupid enough to peek at Chronicle comments about me, there’s been a lot of fretting about what Marc Bousquet, Emory English prof and that rare breed known as the intra-academic hellraiser, would possibly have to say about me and my big fat yap. He could not possibly approve of such a rogue, unrefined creature, one who thinks that just because she’s got the PhD and has been successfully teaching college for ten years that she’s somehow qualified to teach college!
Turns out Bousquet has no problem with me whatsoever, suckas. In fact, I’d even venture to say in this piece he comes off as an ally. In double-fact, I’d even venture to say that if I ever write a book, I’ll excerpt as much of this article as I can as promotional copy ;).
