“Every intellectual gain calls for a loss of sexual potential.” -Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks

Earlier this semester, I was at the Hungarian Pastry Shop with two of the larger tomes I own—Richardson’s Clarissa and Montaigne’s Essais. Lev proceeded to mock me for the books’ immense size. I joked, “You know what they say about girls who read big books…” to which he aptly retorted, “They don’t have boyfriends.” In all earnest, this anecdote is one of my favorite memories of the semester, if not all time.
