Meanwhile, Reporting From a Parallel Universe...

The Daily Telegraph claims that there is "Anger as Literary Giants Lose Out to Slavery Novel."

Ok. But journalist Harry Mount -- his actual name, not a Bart Simpson crank call to Moe's -- only quotes two people. There's Melik Kaylan of the Wall Street Journal. (Lit crit from the WSJ? Isn't that like going to the dentist to get your tires rotated?)

And then there is... well, let's just use the magic of quotation here:

"Toni Morrison is the perfect New York Times poster girl," said Roger Kimball, the co-editor and publisher of The New Criterion, America's leading review of the arts and intellectual life, and the publisher of Encounter Books.

America's... leading... review?.... of?


Oh, you Brits! Your dry humor never fails to amuse!
