Or, as they say at the news desk, Sic Transit Gloria Steinem

Who knew that Evelyn Waugh, author of “Brideshead Revisited,” was a great female author? That’s a real Scoop.

I guess there has been a Decline and Fall in the standards of Time magazine’s list-compiling, and now if people have female-sounding names, compilers don’t bother to check the Vile Bodies of the authors involved before proceeding. If you Loved One of Evelyn Waugh’s books, you too might be a little surprised that an author you remember as male has wound up on the list of 100 Most-Read Female Writers, but — look, what does it matter? Eventually we will all be nothing but a Handful of Dust.
