On my way to UNC for @CHATfestival #chat16. Looking forward to talking about generous thinking this afternoon!

Oh no. I’m so sorry. :(

RT @MLACommons: Almost 200 of you have taken our literary trivia quiz so far, but @cohenss holds the top spot. Can he be beaten? https://t.…

There are a select few books that have had actual cognitive effects on the way I see the world.

Wed Mar 09 12:57:07 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

Not just on the way I understand it, but on the way I perceive it in the first place.

Wed Mar 09 12:57:29 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

Some of those effects have been disorienting but short-lived, as in the case of Amis’s Time’s Arrow.

Wed Mar 09 12:58:32 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

Some have had a much slower burn, like Infinite Jest.

Wed Mar 09 12:59:47 +0000 2016

Replying to @kfitz

I just finished reading @dexterauthor’s Version Control, and it has altered my vision in ways that are both intense and, I think, durable.

Replying to @kfitz

I need everyone to read it so we can discuss: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0307907597/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0307907597&linkCode=as2&tag=plannedobsole-20&linkId=IU6BKILDCGDZXD7R

Replying to @plragde

I am 100% with you. Not a fan overall, but that book really messed with my head.

Wed Mar 09 13:06:53 +0000 2016

Another in that category: Pynchon’s V. These books \(sometimes briefly; sometimes durably\) changed my sense of the mechanics of the universe.

Wed Mar 09 13:14:06 +0000 2016

Others gradually coming to mind: Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia.

Wed Mar 09 13:26:04 +0000 2016

It’s not for nothing that all of these are in varying ways about time, and how time affects who we are, or can be.

Replying to @kfitz

.@dexterauthor So. Much. Both intellectually engrossing and emotionally wrenching, which is a hard combo to pull off.

Replying to @jasonrhody

I can imagine. I saw it in its New York run in 1995 & it was transformative.

Wed Mar 09 16:13:28 +0000 2016

Replying to @jasonrhody

Not to mention: Blair Brown! Victor Garber! Paul Giamatti! Robert Sean Leonard!

Ooh, I bet. That would be terrific fun!

Replying to @terrainsvagues and @dexterauthor

All I could think to do when I was done was make sure EVERYONE I KNOW reads it, too.

That does not seem as though it would turn out well.

Replying to @BendProf

Some other changes as well \(punctuation and the like\).

Mon Mar 21 19:31:56 +0000 2016

Replying to @BendProf

But the key thing is a major change in approach, a focus on the big picture of how & why.

Mon Mar 21 19:33:22 +0000 2016

Replying to @BendProf

The whole thing is focused on teaching and learning. I hope it smooths lots of paths for instructors!

Did that ABC correspondent really just say “the best way to stop an attack like this is to know about it before it happens”?

Tue Mar 22 23:12:35 +0000 2016

Thank you! But I’m curious what you see missing.

Wed Mar 30 12:46:20 +0000 2016

Replying to @s_lvesque

Ah, I tried! But LARB’s house style prevented that.
