“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Book Pimps

Do you know what I mean? Reps from Pearson, McGraw Hill, etc. When they met me face to face they became ashen and left rather quickly. I'd request my ideal comp book: a 100-page book of just poems and some stories with no notes.

The novelist Lucy Corin and I collected the book pimps' books for our students to rip up and make collages out of.
