[Sighting] Letters from The New Yorker readers

"... The woman who accuses relativist feminists of circling Dante’s vestibule of Hell is a walking contradiction herself, a Nabokovian nymph who argues philosophy like a man. For that kind of unapologetic power, I salute her. But there’s a self-satisfaction that I imagine resides in spinning a narrative of being superhuman."

Cecil FloresNew York City
