Quote of the Day

519LT-6HAoL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_While reading Bearing Witness: Reading, Writers, and the Novel in Nigeria by Wendy Griswold, I came across this awesome sentence that she says the famous (and late) American anthropologist Clifford Geertz also made a strong case for:

All culture is local culture, in the sense that culture exists through the interpretations of human minds and the practices of human actors, and this is the case for such concrete cultural objects as novels.

Wendy Griswold
