Worthwhile Analysis: Vanessa Edwards Foster on Whithering Heights, er…, NCTE

Catch it at TransAdvocate:

[Mara Keisling] can’t be both insider with the elite few and outsider with all the rest of us. The choice must be made.

That said, her performance as an HRC critic makes zero sense. It’s like watching a cigarette boat zooming ahead in a race when suddenly the rudder snaps, and the boat does a quick 180 headlong into the oncoming race boats. The outsiders weren’t buying the “sudden critic” routine.

There’s more, of course – and its a long post, but Vanessa knows of what she speaks.
