I am an author who doesn't mind stepping on toes.
Art should not only entertain us, making us laugh and cry, but it should push us, force us to question ourselves. What good is entertainment that doesn't make us wonder whether we've been wrong about everything we believe? It's mindless, useless, a spinning of wheels that takes us one numb step closer to the dirt.
There is a place for that kind of thing. It's why I watch TV.
But if I can be entertained to the point that I don't even notice my point of view has been challenged? Well, that's what I call art.
