an excerpt:

During a debate about Hemingway’s diary entries being published against his wishes, you refuse to accept that a dead person has a right to privacy, successfully convincing both a classroom of your peers and your Lit teacher that you are an enormous asshole.

The next week, you argue in the same class that posthumous organ donation should be mandatory. Everyone seems to be on the same page. You are confused.

This is an absolutely spectacular essay by Silpa Kovvali
