really liked it
Recommended for: Anyone
Read in March, 2004

An excellent, well-reasoned puncturing of several inflated literary reputations. Which, granted, sounds cruel from a writer's perspective; but as a reader, completely necessary. It's sad to see that many of the mistakes that my excellent grade school English teacher struck from my early works are praised by the establishment as interesting or "edgy" writing. Would recommend to anyone fed up with modern literature.
