Imagine if the authors who created these syllabi for their courses were all teaching at the same school at the same time.
“Who’d you get for English?”
“David Foster Wallace. I hear he’s a hard grader. How about you?”
“Donald Barthelme. He’s apparently making us read infinity books this semester.”
P.S. If you’re as charmed by the Lynda Barry syllabus as the rest of us, you can follow the class from afar on their Tumblr.
