Description
A quarter century ago Pushcart Press took aim at laughable reviews that had trashed literary masterpieces through the centuries, quoting some 175 attacks in a little book that itself became a classic. "The final blow-up of what was once a remarkable, if minor, talent," wrote The New Yorker on William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!, while the New York Times Book Review thought Joseph Heller's Catch-22 "gasps for want of craft and sensibility," and Virginia Woolf deemed James Joyce's Ulysses "diffuse ... brackish ... pretentious." Today much has changed, notes Pushcart founder Bill Henderson, and the rise of blogs and critics who fling their bile from behind a wall of anonymity has prompted him to reintroduce this primer on the pitfalls of boorish and uninformed critique.
