I love drama in the writing world.
This sounds so much like Rousseau and Voltaire going for each other's throat.
Or Turgenev and Dostoevsky flaming each other.
Or Nabokov … being Nabokov (Yes, I will always find an opportunity to plug my hatred of Nabokov into the conversation!)
We should start a TV-reality show. Just shove a few of us into a very small one-room apartment for a month, all expenses paid, put some cameras in and post everything on the internet. Now that is what I call self-promotion.
