I'm a practicing lawyer born and raised in Louisiana who graduated from Dartmouth College and then became the Editor-in-Chief of The University of Chicago Law Review.

“Infinite Jest is an endurance contest. You manage to get through it and you have no choice but to say you like it.”
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Gabrielle Zevin
“Despite the fact that he loves books and owns a bookstore, A.J. does not particularly care for writers. He finds them to be unkempt, narcissistic, silly, and generally unpleasant people. He tries to avoid the ones who've written books he loves for fear that they will ruin their books for him.”
