Private: Wolcott on Franzen’s latest

Looks like somebody didn’t like somebody’s new book.

From my friend Chris Baker:

“Ouch! Mr. Wolcott does the most devastating litcrit body slams imaginable. His piece on Kathryn Harrison’s The Kiss in the October 1997 Vanity Fair is even more stinging.”

Others have been more generous about Franzen’s How to be Alone.

I haven’t read it. First-hand opinions, anyone?
