NY Times on Lived Experience

Pamela Paul published an interesting piece on cultural appropriation in the New York Times yesterday (4/24). The piece is 'The Limits of Lived Experience.' Paul discusses the issue I considered in my author's note to A Beautiful Land: the author's right to consider any subject matter they feel equipped to explore. But rather than simply defend the author's right to write, Paul points affirmatively to the at-times uniquely valuable voice of the outsider. #PamelaPaul #LivedExperience
