aside

This is a break from 20 Questions, but Kelly's comment about finding Harper Lee's unfinished manuscripts reminded me of something that Jeff Brower--the one who inspired me to be an English teacher--said the other day. He said, and I'm quoting, "The Chosen is way better than To Kill A Mockingbird." How can one of the smartest people in the world think that? I mean, The Chosen? That seems ludicrous to me. But he's also the one that loves A Separate Peace and Lord of the Flies but hates The Great Gatsby. So what do I know?

Back to 20Q tomorrow, gators.

An English teacher who doesn't like The Great Gatsby??? I just don't know what to do with that.
