I’ve discovered the high point of my stunted academic career: I have become a Wikipedia footnote. And, until I get to be as famous as one of Paperhouse’s guest posters, that will have to do. The best part is that, if you look at the discussion page, it seems as though my article on Bret Easton Ellis and his not-very-good horror novel has been included as a result of an etiquette-smashing argument between contributors about whether satire can co-exist with unreliable narrators:
let’s just stop this squabble while we still have some dignity.
I’ll add a reference for American Psycho and we’ll leave it at that.
Helping to maintain the dignity of Wikipedia. It’s very nearly as exalted as getting a doctorate.
