A little Warner

John Warner reviews Alissa Quart’s Branded: The Buying and Selling of Teenagers for The Morning News today: “corporations exist to assimilate, thus to go after them as a potential solution is like attacking a cell for dividing or Clay Aiken for making that cheesy singing face.”

Speaking of Warner, and of Treisman (see preceding posts), if you didn’t catch Warner’s “Among the Unsavvy” earlier this year, you might want to read it now. In it, Warner reacts to Treisman’s statement that writers sending in unagented submissions aren’t “all that savvy about publishing and probably not about writing either,” and offers to take over The New Yorker‘s slush pile for a month.
