What has she said, please? I've not read it. But hope to. I bought a book of Salmon essays a year ago, and luckily skimmed through them in Cassidy's before losing them in Donohues, so got to rate the competition.
There's a few like her about, ready to stick the boot in. But that's what people are sensing is gonna be happening more and more in the coming po-biz scene, perhaps, i'm wondering from the general vibe i'm sniffin at the cyberound lamposts in the globish poetry village of Am 'n UK po-biz.
I've noticed it in America especially. More so than the UK - where it's mainly a fumey kinda bore hating yer every plastic fibre in total silence. Very strategic and incredibly ruthless with the competition: 10,000 po-biz pros in America alone. And very cliquey editorially, online. The guys (it is mainly guys) throwing themselves about in Chicago and Boston, can get really ratty and pretty aggressive. The F bomb is a normal unit of verbal etiqutte and critical currency there - a whole different stilleto in the flyte.
