There's an ugly, shitty review in this week's Times Book Review, and a Dale Peck review; surprisingly enough, they're not the same one. Peck, who usually hates it when writers show that they read a book before they wrote one, actually likes the intertextuality in S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders.

Katha Politt has turned from her usual brilliantly incisive political writing to write about her personal problems, such as her Marxist boyfriend who cheated on her and dumped her, and The Times has found a woman to give it a nasty, mean-spirited review.

I read a few paragraphs of the mean-spirited review; that was all I could stomach.

I didn't evenr ead that much; too busy.

I love Katha Pollitt, but I'm not caught up to her last book yet!
