Then Mitch interviews statistician and journalist Ben Blatt about his book Nabokov’s Favorite Word Is Mauve. In the book, Blatt brings big data to the literary canon and attempts to answer questions such as “What are our favorite authors’ favorite words?” “Do men and women write differently?” and “Are bestsellers getting dumber over time?”
