dr. mcmillan cottom has written a really good really long essay about dolly parton

Really interesting about how this centers on what Dolly means to people now, rather than on what she has meant to people -- my mother felt very strongly about her working-class feminism and how people looked down on her -- while acknowledging that the two are barely related.
This digs real deep into the lenses on Dolly that come from race and gender. I would only have liked to read more material on class, too--but it's already pretty long so you can't cover everything.
