A Reader's Manifesto

Before Dale Peck, as one has pointed out, there was B.R. Myers. The Atlantic has made available online the original 2001 article, which led to the book, subtitled "an attack on the growing pretentiousness of American literary prose". Worth reading for its uncompromising assessment of the prose of Moody, McCarthy, deLillo and other darlings of the literary establishment.

(An earlier post on Myers is here.)
