Not only was Bailey's commentary on the situation excellent in every respect, she also managed to write it while on a very tight graduate school application deadline.
This is a huge achievement!
I am super-proud of her, and I hope you will all enjoy reading her blog as much as I did. At the very least, I hope you'll better understand why I think Gribben and his kinfolk, not to mention his publishing house, should be walled off a la The Cask of Amontillado.
Read Bailey's take on the situation!
*What makes this all the worse is that Gribben is, in fact, a Twain scholar. Meaning, he specializes in studying the work of Mark Twain. This means that 1. he should know better and 2. he doesn't.
