She calls writing “an aggressive and even a hostile act” because though the author tries his best to veil or camouflage the writing, yetone cannot get away from the salient fact that the author is a “secret bully” by imposing his “sensibility on the reader’s most private space.”Didion, goes on to enumerate her experiences at Berkeley where she did her majors in English and speaks of her inability to deal with different ideas.
