"So fuck Doubleday Doran"
"...moreover, the content raises serious issues, legitimate concerns about what is appropriate as subject matter for literary expression."
This is a disturbing sentence.
It is what it is. I feel no need to convince anyone to think differently and I have no concern that future endeavors will be compromised because a few academics question what is appropriate in terms of subject matter for literary expression.
For them, yes. But in no way will any degree of acceptance, or rejection, for that matter, change any of the words or the impact of these words to me. It's irrelevant what anyone else thinks. Art is a personal thing. I don't care one lick how many people like, hate, or are indifferent to Buk.For scholars who do like his work and want to see him recognised this is an important battle to fight out in academia.
