Multiculturalism: I Suck At It

Larry over at OF Blog of the Fallen did a very thought-provoking and much-needed post today. He asked the following questions:

1. Name the last book by a female author that you've read.

Mercè Rodoreda's Death in Spring

2. Name the last book by an African or African-American author that you've read.

Huck Finn? *winces*

3. Name one from a Latino/a author.

Rodoreda again.

4. How about one from an Asian country or Asian-American?

The first volume of Kohta Hirano's Hellsing series. Does manga count?

5. What about a GLBT writer?

Esther Tusquet's The Same Sea as Every Summer

6. Why not name an Israeli/Arab/Turk/Persian writer, if you're feeling lucky?

Well, Faye Kellerman is an American, but she's also an Orthodox Jew.

7. Any other "marginalized" authors you've read lately?

... Yep, I suck
