Robert Birnbaum interviews Tibor Fischer, the British writer who gained a great deal of attention early last year for his disparaging remarks about Martin Amis’ Yellow Dog. Birnbaum talks with him about, among other things, his reaction to the Amis book.
RB: ….You recently gained some notoriety here because of your Martin Amis non-reviewâ€”it wasn’t really a review?
TF: No, it wasn’t. In a review, you have to justify and explain your comments.
