Thinking is not a performance

I've just started reading The Wife's Tale by Lori Lansens, whose novel The Girls I loved so very much a while back. And I'm starting Amy Jones' fiction in The New Quarterly, which makes me look forward to her forthcoming book What Boys Like. Online, Lawrence Hill discusses his problem with the overuse of To Kill a Mockingbird in schools. Writer Laurel Snyder on overcoming her Twitter addiction: " It’s the idea that thinking is not a performance, hard as that can be for someone like me to accept."
