Vicarious MFA: Assignment for Monday
For Jonathan Lethem’s Masterclass about the essay:
1. Joan Didion’s “The White Album”
2. David Antin’s “The Theory And Practice of Postmodernism: A Manifesto”
3. Annie Dillard’s “Total Eclipse”
4. John D’Agata’s running commentary in between the various entries.
(All of these can be found in The Next American Essay, edited by John D’Agata)
Also, it was your turn to hand-in an essay yesterday, so I hope you did it. And I should probably remind you that that psychology book isn’t going to read itself by 10 AM this Friday.
