And some have irrelevance thrust upon them

I share the hand wringing around the book trade suggesting that as newspapers continue to lose their relative influence, books will have lost a vital place to be widely discussed and promoted.
But then shit like this shows up in the New York Times (that would be the Paper of Record, folks) and then I don't care if I read another review by the "television critic at Slate and the film critic at Spin" ever again.
What the hell, NYT? Was there no reviewer with a background reviewing books to do this?
Harry Revised is a solid first novel and the NYT is a crock.
