Apropros of nothing, sort of: say what you will about Dave Eggers (and he does kind of annoy me these days) and his sort of stifling self-consciousness, this long exchange between him and J. Lethem about the nature of criticism is a Really Good Thing and certainly started me thinking in a whole bunch of new directions when I first read it a few years ago. Of course, the fact that Lethem is involved may have helped, but I still see a way more reasonable version of a view Dave's expressed other places here--a kind of Klostermanny view, although I can't quite articulate how that works.
Anyway, it is late, and I should probably get to bed. To be continued.
