Another Thursday, another chance to post at Blog of a Bookslut.Â The key bit:
What kind of self-deluded narcissism is required for an editor of the Times Book Review section to write, “Never mind reviews. What’s happened to proletarian literature in this country?” It’s fairer to turn this around: “Never mind proletarian literature. What’s happened to reviews in this country?” Is it really too much to ask that the Times review chancier works or ones from smaller presses? Garner pretends as though the fact that the Times hasn’t reviewed any such books means that they don’t exist.
Read the whole thing.Â I suspect that more interviews are forthcoming soon, too!
