D-Nasty, a 25-year-old investment banker and budding novelist, has taken to wearing corduroy suits while writing:
I had heard somewhere that writers need to brand themselves.
Apparently, if you brand yourself you can get away with sub par work because people buy your indentity, not your work.
This explains how Tom Wolfe seriously called a book “A Man In Full” while wearing white triple breasted suits and spats. No one said a word!
I have decided to become to corduroy what Wolfe is to white.
