Fair enough. I wouldn't want to be taught by anyone who hated their subject.
Mind you, I wouldn't want to be taught by him at all. He'd set my teeth on edge.
It made me think about my own reading habits. Right now I'm majoring on female authors. My favourite classic is Charlotte Bronte and the modern novels I'm reading are mostly by women. I particularly like A.S. Byatt, Hilary Mantel, Sarah Waters and Kate Atkinson. I'm halfway through a book by Ali Smith and I've got something by Rose Tremain lined up. Ailz says women authors are better at getting into their characters' heads. That's a bit sweeping, but I think women on the whole (there are always exceptions) are better at getting inside men's heads than men are at getting inside women's. Too many male authors don't look much beyond their female characters' chest measurements.
