New Blood Needed

The problem with American literature is that it's been dominated at its highest levels by Old Money New England WASPs like George Plimpton, Lewis Lapham, and Rick Moody, all of them too stupid to follow their fathers into corporate law or banking. Lit is run by people who are not "the best" even in their own families.
