This past weekend, the biggest story on social media was not about a powerful man who had sexually assaulted someone, or something the president said on Twitter.

Charmingly, as if we were all at a Paris salon in the 1920s, everyone had an opinion about a short story.

A story like John Updike’s “A&P,” in which a man watches women and thinks about how hot they are, is a literary classic that is regularly taught in high schools.
