Perfectly agree...why is he (Goodis) not talked about in the US at
all...???... and in academia they totally sneer at people like him...they
are so entrenched in their little cliques...and mostly involved in self
congratulation of their politically correct authors...now when it comes to
the press (book reviews in major newspapers...and some local ones) they are,
as usual intotally devoted to the States, abysmally narrow and totally
devoted to the status quo, the publishing establishment and all basically
devoid of a differentš point of vue/ideology/intellectual
This small Friday evening tirade should start a few fireworks...and nasties
at this frog-yank who has studiously read the NYTimes book Review every
Sunday for almost 30 years and is lamenting on the general inept stuff
coming out of tit...
Thank good we have the internet...
