REBLOG: “I’m not interested in teaching books by women”

Reblogged from Sandra @ My Fiction Nook :

"I say I don’t love women writers enough to teach them, if you want women writers go down the hall. What I teach is guys. Serious heterosexual guys. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Chekhov, Tolstoy. Real guy-guys. Henry Miller. Philip Roth."

 

Screw you.

 

Spoiler Alert: the Proust you so admire? He's gay.

 

 

And the response from the "woman down the hall"

 

What a douche-canoe. I didn't realize that professors at the Toronto university had this much control over the curriculum.
