My Letter to Geist Reviewing a Review

Sina Queyras (author of the outstanding Lemon Hound, amongst other great books) has republished a letter I sent to Geist some time ago, which they published, being the good sports they are.

My letter to the editor is essentially an extended complaint about what I see as the poor quality of book reviewing in Canada (but I must say it's not just a Canadian problem). You can read the letter and some responses here.

UPDATE: A mild controversy has broken out over my “review of a review.” See this mean-spirited but brilliant “review of my review of a review” by Zachariah Wells.
