Pull quote

Dale Peck, judging between Ali Smith's The Accidental and Ian McEwan's Saturday in the Morning News Tournament of Books, says this: "books like these make me want to join al Qaeda."

Go read the whole thing here.

Then read the entire commentary on Peck's refusal to select a winner here (my pull quote from that is this: "In order to outdo Dale Peck in the B.R. Meyers 'everything created after a certain date is crap' sweepstakes, I’d like to declare that everything published since Og scratched out Fire Make Meat Easier to Chew and Also Kills Worms That Live on Meat on his cave wall using a stick and the blood of his best mate is worthless puke that gives comfort to al Qaeda").
