The First

Who'll be the first establishment writer to join the growing list of names at the Petition to PEN?

The person will have to be unconventional, daring, independent, forward-looking, and on the side of the underdog.

Is such creature out there among the legions of timid apparatchiks? I believe the answer is yes.

Join the noise. Help create a new literary world. --
bravest of the brave, boldest of the bold.

(Be sure to check out the link to photos now at the post "More Swanky Parties"-- which demonstrates the out-of-touch reality of New York's literary world. This as the industrial heartland is in collapse, and while the underclass even in a prosperous city like Philadelphia is on the verge of exploding-- as it nearly did a couple weekends ago. The social divide in America is enormous. . . .)
