Allen: "Which is your real complaint, right? He doesn't seem to like writers you like?"
That wasn't the point of my statement. Whether or not I disagree with his taste, or even his points, has nothing to do with my reasons for distrusting his motives. He is spouting his opinion from a shaky platform, for all the reasons Bruce stated above. The review reads like sour grapes, like an attempt to slap the face of an industry that has, for the most part, ignored him. Has anyone here read a Dale Peck novel? Had anyone heard of him before this review?
