Nikola Pikola : The bad review meets its match – welcome to the age of counter-criticism | Emma Brockes 'Personally, I think the greatest response to criticism of recent years came from Maurice Sendak. [...] and over the course of two hours he expressed outrage about practically every facet of modern life, including Salman Rushdie, who had given him a bad review some years earlier in the New York Times. “That flaccid fuckhead,” said Sendak. “He was detestable. I called up the Ayatollah, nobody knows that.” Rushdie, of course, responded on Twitter, and was grace itself. “I love you too, Maurice,” he wrote. Perhaps we could all learn a lesson from that.' 1 hour ago - View -
