The Din in the Head
I’m a fan of Cynthia Ozick, who has a new book out, The Din in the Head: Essays. Here’s a quote from the book, which is available from Barnes and Noble:
"A department of English is not the same as a Marxist tutorial. A rap CD is not the same as academic scholarship. A suicide bomber who blows up a pizzeria crowded with baby carriages is not the same as a nation-builder."
