What have other literary folk said about the big CIA-Paris Review story? I've been simultaneously busy trying to set up the ULA's big February 25th Philadelphia Reading and have limited time on-line.
As far as I know, Maud Newton mentioned the 2/13 NY Times story, and linked to it. Credit to her for that.
On Friday I asked Richard Cummings if he'd received requests for interviews or statements from establishment media outlets. His response: "No word. Nothing."
(Curious that the 1978 remake of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" was on television last night. I see parallels between the situation depicted, and the contemporary literary world.)
This matter is a huge dirty blot on American literary history-- on the integrity and credibility of American literature. Writers everywhere-- everywhere, including all who've appeared in PR's pages-- should be outraged.
Where is the outrage?
