This is David Gilmour, he teaches at The University of Toronto and he's published a handful of novels.
He was interviewed today by Random House Canada, in which he wrote about what he does and doesn't teach in his class.
Needless to say, the Internet is super excited about his comments...
With users calling him a misognyst and a racist for not wanting to teach literature written by "Chinese, or women" authors.
Gilmour's last novel was A Perfect Night To Go To China, published in 2005.
