Dear Students:

I am very glad that your professors are assigning Essex Hemphill’s “Commitments” and “American Wedding,” Amos Tutuola’s Palm-Wine Drinkard, Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s The River Between, and Frantz Fanon.

Please find some way to cite my blog if you decide to use my ideas. It’s only polite.

My syntax is idiosyncratic enough that plagiarism-aware professors WILL find my blog very easily.
