WHAT is Brooklyn’s Literary Snob Set? WHO belongs to it? HOW do they operate? (The WHERE of the matter is obvious: gentrified sections of Brooklyn, NY.)
These are questions I’ll endeavor to answer in coming weeks.
Word has it that these are part of an endangered cultural species: supporters of New York-based establishment literature. Progeny of privilege. Well-connected holdovers clinging desperately to the familiar and known.
One thing is certain: NEW POP LIT (www.newpoplit.com) is an antidote to the east coast literary snob set.
