Rotten Rejections: Barbara Pym

[I think this Wikipedia article on Barbara Pym will provide some much needed context to this particular literary travesty.]

“An Unsuitable Attachment (1963)

Novels like (this), despite their qualities, are getting increasingly difficult to sell.

The Sweet Dove Died (1978)

Not the kind of thing to which people are turning.”

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
