Literary Ladies

Did you know that the literary novelist is the frumpiest of all public figures?  The Globe and Mail says so in an article with the headline “not a normal literary lady”.  Read it yourself (Mar. 31/13) and see what you think, but the main point seems to be that women writers should take care not to wear boring footwear to interviews with newspaper reporters. I’m trying to picture the footwear of some of our most esteemed literary ladies, but unfortunately I haven’t been paying attention.  I guess I’ve been too distracted by their books.
