Try the Veal

We’ve been busy lately, formatting old feature articles and adding some missing ones to the Booklist Online archive. It’s always fun to see the stuff from before my tenure at Booklist. I chuckled several times at the quotes in Bill Ott’s Back Page column, “Finding the Good Parts” (first published March 1, 1997). Take this one liner–please:

I can’t understand why a person will take a year to write a novel when he can easily buy one for a few dollars.
