Quote of the Week

"[Samuel] Johnson has no illusion about criticism's ability to fix or cure. Critics are to writers not as doctors are to patients but as bearded ladies are to trapeze artists -- another, sadder act in the same big show."
- Adam Gopnik, "Man of Fetters," 12/8/08 The New Yorker, p.95
