This is a hilarious, outstanding bit of stereotyping from Lauren Leto. What does your favorite author say about you?
Christopher Buckley (or William F. Buckley): People who love excess verbiage.
Ayn Rand: Workaholics seeking validation.
David Foster Wallace: Confirmed 90’s literati.
Jane Austen (or Bronte Sisters): Girls who made out with other girls in college when they were going through a “phase”.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: People who can start a fire.
Nathaniel Hawthorne: People who used to sleep so heavy that they would pee their pants.
Charles Dickens: Ninth graders who think they’re going to be authors someday but end up in marketing.
And so many, many more!
