Pandering to white women

Marlon James contribution to basic economics: We shouldn’t pander to our customers, just because they buy the books we write. Of course I appreciate what he’s trying to get across; but then many of us have jobs, manufacture products, we aren’t wild about. It pays the rent. Just grit your teeth, Marlon, add a chapter or two of long-suffering, astringent prose, and then include a free bar of milk chocolate with your next story.
