"I wasn't well-read in genre fiction, not out of snobbery but I'd always rather preferred nonfiction and poetry to most fiction. I will admit to being probably the worst-read English professor in academia; and, believe me, that is saying something. Not that I haven't trudged through novel after dreary contemporary 'serious' novel, looking for some clue as to why the author wrote it, why he felt it necessary that his readers get down on all fours, for the six hundredth time, to view the dark underside of American life as exposed in all its invidiousness by the light of his (usually academic) hero's tender sensibilities and penetrating critical intelligence.

'Isn't that Shakespeare?' asked Evon.

'You don't think there's room for Shakespeare in my common little mind?'

You know, sometimes she likes a break, so I'll read her a novel. She likes all the law guys.' He showed her the next one they'd take up, Mitigating Circumstances, which was on a table downstairs.
