Maybe that’s his dream, but I’m pretty damned sure it’s not Peck’s

Apparently writer Stanley Crouch showed up at Tina Brown’s party last night to crow about his assault on critic Dale Peck. Choire Sicha reports that Crouch bragged:

“[I] had the distinct feeling that if I hit him a few more times, he’d say thank you and call me his daddy.”

Says Sicha: “That’s so sweet! Between this kind of gay-baiting claptrap, his propensity for punching co-workers, and the ill-regard he’s held in by a number of female editors for his tacky behavior with them, we’re surprised the dude still gets work at all.”
