The longest-lived tempest in a teapot continues to rage

Here’s yet another article on the Great Snark Debate (background now available by clicking “Ctrl + F3 on Windows“), this time from the Canadian perspective.

The author, Kate Taylor, heralds snark and the criticism coming out of the U.K. She pokes fun at the kinder and gentler approach advocated by The Believer. Evidently she sees Tibor Fisher’s attack on the Amis book as representative of U.K. critics, while charging that Dale Peck “is a very unusual beast among North American fiction reviewers: He simultaneously writes [] vicious reviews and publishes numerous novels.”
