35.0% "Wow, Schiff writes poorly. Or, as she would probably say, her prose is content to be defined by passivity, to ramble in disconnected clauses, unable to be reigned in by editors, with the result being that the sentences are likely to come to a long-awaited end without conveying any point in particular." 6 comments
