DSCF0012-ADJ

 

“Students in MFA programs I visit are upset, even outraged, when I tell them that when I was an editor at Harcourt, I stopped reading a manuscript that contained a grammatical error on the first page.”

Just as certain top notch janitors refuse to enter buildings in front of which are gum-wrappers, no doubt. Please, for the sake of Literature, you and your ilk: seek help.
