Time magazine has had to issue a correction to an article about the 100 most read female authors in colleges.
They conceded that "the original version of this story included Evelyn Waugh, who is a man".
Professor Valentine Cunningham, from Oxford University, told Today programme presenter Justin Webb about the long history of the author being confused for someone of the opposite sex.
