Good Times, Bad Times
It seems that the New York Times Book Review can't do right in the eyes of anyone any more. It's no secret that since Sam Tanenhaus took over writers and readers have chaffed over the editorial direction the NYTBR has gone. First, it was Tanenhaus' placed emphasis on more mainstream non-fiction. Then came the supercilious essays via Donadio et. al. Now, writers and readers are in an open revolt against the very quality of the reviews.
