I stole this little tidbit from author, Douglas Clegg
Authors take solace from Wretched Reviews. You're in good company!
"...as unaquainted with art as a hog is with mathematics."
The London Critic review of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass
Want more solace, go to Wretched Reviews and bathe in the sweet revenge of successful writers. And hey, looks like they sell t-shirts, if you want a daily reminder that the critics are often WRONG.
PS - I promise I'm not selling this stuff. I just thought it was cool. But heck, you're welcome to send me money anytime you want.
