According to readers of memoirist Gwendolyn Liu’s latest collection of essays, the essay entitled “On Swans” must be the good one because it has the same title as the book. “I was making my way through the book, and I found the first couple essays to be fine enough, but when I got to ‘On Swans,’ I was like hell yeah, now it’s time for the good one,” said English concentrator Brandon Madrillo ‘24, who pushed himself to read the essays in order instead of skipping to the titular one first. “I mean, it’s obviously the good essay because why else would she name the whole collection after it? After I finish ‘On Swans,’ the rest of the collection is gonna be such a struggle to get through because I already know none are gonna be as good as that one.” At press time, Madrilllo told people his favorite essay was a different one to make it clear he read the whole book.
