Serious (Literary) Question

In terms of a badge of honor, is it better to receive a dismissal from Michiko Kakutani as “a worthless hack” or a glowing review? …my money’s on the former, but, given that my own chances of ever drawing an eye roll from the great and powerful empress of literature are somewhere between asymptotically approaching to the actual nil, I doubt I’ll ever know from experience.

Still, though, it would be fucking cool to know that Michiko Kakutani is aware of your existence. Guess I’ll have to finish something that might someday merit her acknowledgment.

(i.e. get to work writing Benji, you worthless hack!)
