On reviewers

Katharine Weber captures the anxieties a writer must face when it comes to inept book reviewers over at the LitBlog Co-Op:

Then come the reviews. The wise readings, the ridiculous readings. The misreadings. The scolding, reluctant praise. Razor-sharp mixed reviews, empty-headed raves. Crackpot Amazon “reviews.” In print and online, Triangle has received an extraordinary volume of reviews and response, more than any of my previous books (thanks in part to the ever-expanding world of blogging), from wonderfully astute close readings to disdainful and grotesque dismissals.

Keep an eye out at the Co-Op for more on "Triangle" week.
