Golly I love that essay/fiction/piece/thing. Any author who can siphon humor out of straightfaced technical writing is a friend of mine.
However! I think JSF’s piece was actually first published in the Paris Review Nº 156. Or at least, a version of it showed up in TPR 2 years before the Guardian. Haven’t dug into each to find differences, nor do I know for sure if TPR was first. I could use some help though!
