Proletarian reviews: Just the truth Ruth

Proletarian book reviewing. That's what you have here on the Henry Wigging Blog. Where else does the reviewer admit to you he has but two choices: 1) get the review finished by next Sunday, or 2) go to the library and check the book out again. I'm sorry, that's unique in the annals of American literary criticism.

What that tells you is this: the Henry Wiggen blog is beholden to no one. We are not in any big book publisher’s pocket. We're not in the pocket of any big-box bookselling conglomerate. We're not in any agent’s pocket, any writer's pocket -- even the CIA can't tell us whether we like a book or don't like a book.

That's what you get on the Henry Wiggin blog. The truth. Read it and weep.

  1. If I don't finish the book by Sunday, I'll be in the pocket of Big Library Fine.
