Brian Evenson, Ursula K. Le Guin, Alyssa Songsiridej, Danya Kukafka, Annie Ernaux.
The master of creating a misunderstood narrator with immoral tendencies is Nabokov, and for this reason, I believe Lolita is a true masterpiece.
Thank you, Matt. Signed up for the first world building workshop!
RE:"... but I like to believe Le Guin knew exactly what reactions she might provoke by her design of Genly’s worldview." Absolutely! Your post actually took me to "The Outcast" episode of Stark Trek where an androgenous race finds gender specificity unacceptable.
Great exercise at the end as well. Thank you!
Thank you, Matt. I have signed up for the workshop on Writing with AI. Wondering if you've explored that in your own writing practice yet? I've been experimenting with SudoWrite, which seems to be the best available for fiction writing. I have found it to be a very helpful and invigorating "junior writing partner."
