Lionel Shriver, We Need To Talk About Cultural Appropriation

Based on Lionel Shriver’s recent comments about cultural appropriation and identity politics holding writers back from self-expression and writing fiction, Sharmilla Ganesan weighs in on what it means to respect the stories of others, or whether writing fiction should exist in a creative space that’s in a free-for-all freefall.
