A (male, tenured) reader writes:
I have to review a book that came out in 2013. It contains 14 essays, with 15 authors (as one is co-authored). I agreed to do it without considering the makeup of the authors. Now I see that all the authors are men.
I’m looking for some advice on how to mention the gender makeup of the volume. My gut instinct to say something snarky. But snark can be a mistake.
I’m tenured and willing to take hostile responses from just about anyone. So I don’t have to worry about how it will effect me.
Thanks for any advice you can supply!
