Freedom to Write Badly

Here’s what’s interesting, though. I hated Grandes’novel. I found it offensive to my sensibilities as a reader, a literary critic, and an ethnic Jew. But I don’t want her to be hounded, persecuted, or prevented from publishing more novels.

To the contrary. I want Grandes to keep writing with complete freedom. I want readers to decide if they want to read her novels. I want people to be able to write honest reviews if they do read and publish them freely. I want to be able to hear from readers who loved the novel and perceived it differently. I don’t want anybody to be shut up or forced to apologize. It would be a lot LOT worse if that happened.
