Something Borrowed: Gladwell wonders if a charge of plagiarism should ruin your life.
When it was announced that Jonah Lehrer had made up some of the Bob Dylan quotes in his latest book, Imagine, it warranted a text from my boyfriend. We were both such big fans of his work and perhaps playing into a parasocial relationship, I was quite sad when this truth came out. But today Faris shared this gem from 2004, written by Malcolm Gladwell for The New Yorker, in which Gladwell explores an instance where he was plagiarized. Such an interesting read!
