Dr. Frank's What's-it: Comment on Roddy Doyle
Comments: Roddy Doyle

Ah, one of the downsides of the electronic era.
Back in the good old paper-days writers didn't have to bother with bad reviews, as (and I quote famous Dutch writer Harry Mulish) after 5 days there were only two people left who remembered it: the writer and the critic.
About the critic Mulish said: 'He would, no doubt, preferred to have written the book rather than the review.'
Looking forward to the kill, though. ;)
