Rumble Bumble McCrumble
I must stop reading Lit ed pieces in the papers. There was a piece in the Observer yesterday about the lit magazine Granta. Apparently there has been a bit of a clear out, one of the people now without a job is an ex colleague of the person who was writing the piece. He wasn't happy. Finger pointing, much puffing out of chests and the literary world is heading to hell in a handcart. What does it matter you ask? Well about a full page it seems. Bob McCrumble, lit ed and angry person is all of a tizz. Rich people now own Granta and apparently they're not worh a fig because they've got some American ne'er do well on the case as editor. Posturing at its worst.
