Wits writ lit crit

Sometimes I write things that aren't crosswords. My most recent thing of that nature is a short contribution to Coudal Partners' Field-Tested Books, a series in which writers recount how reading a book in a particular location affected their experience of reading it. In my case, I reminisce about reading The Chronic-(what?)-cles of Narnia, which I never had any idea were supposed to be crypto-Christian parables and which didn't prevent me from ending up an atheist, which means it's probably too much to hope that Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series will help create a generation of free-thinkers.

(Apologies to confused readers who saw this post a while ago, when I accidentally posted the links while the site was still in beta.)

That is just an adorable story. I didn't know it was supposed to be crypto-Christian when I read it either. And I'm keeping hope alive and giving the His Dark Materials trilogy to my nieces and nephew.
