V.S. Naipaul’s Party Trick

Earlier this week, writer and noted shit-talker V.S. Naipaul said during an interview that women writers aren’t as good as their male counterparts. Hahahaha. Anyway, he also claimed that he can tell within a few paragraphs if something was written by a man or a woman. So, to test his theory that it’s possible to discern the sex of a writer from their work, the Guardian put together a fun little quiz. Why don’t you go take it and see if you prove the old crank right or wrong. (I scored an impressive 3 out of 10, but that could be because I was too busy fretting about my own feelings and indulging my sentimental nature to do anything well.)
