Pictured from Left to Right: Francine Prose, John Leonard, David Ulin, Sam Tanenhaus and Carlin Romano.
Incidentally, Tanenhaus, whether because of an impacted schedule or fearing any questions pertaining to the NYTBR‘s regrettable declivity, ran away from the panel right before the Q&A part. I had fully intended to ask him how an editor who served up this sleazy assignment could talk about ethics. But Sammy Boy, who I am now convinced is the George W. Bush of the literary world, did a fine job of hanging himself in his own noose.
More to come.
