And then how Franzen goes on to fall into that usual NYKR-writer morass of "I interviewed this person who is doing something that, to this writer, seemed new and amazing and obviously the solution."
Why doesn't Franzen stick to fiction?

I am reminded of my friend's grandmother who lived in an addition to their house and referred to certain olive oils as "extra well-behaved."
But if it's not real, then what? What possible helpful next step is there? I suppose it creates an opportunity to harass or humiliate, but I don't find that very appealing.
Short of some sort of physical contact, "dialing the number on the spot" is perhaps the most insane and threatening thing I can imagine a man doing. There are two possible results: the number is fake or it is not. But either way, How does dialing it immediately possibly end in a way that doesn't make it clear that you are a terrible person?

I'm pretty sure we'll figure out a way to invent new races.
