Zachary’s Pizza in north Berkeley has a new piece of fan art up. It seems to have been done by quite a young artist. Sitting at a table are several celebrated East Bay authors, whose wobbly faces might get in the way of identification if they weren’t, luckily, all holding books printed with their names. At the table are Maxine Hong Kingston, Ursula K. LeGuin, Michael Chabon, Jack London, Gertrude Stein and Philip K. Dick. Eating pizza.
I think that trying to imagine the progress of this dinner illustrates the problems with canons.
