The wonderful blog The Midnight Bell has been quiet for a wee while, but recently it has come alive again as angry and funny as ever. Here is TMB on the blogs versus papers palaver:

I’m a fully qualified Eng Lit gatekeeper - the right qualifications from the right university - and I just don’t think the broadsheets are any good at the job they claim to do when asserting ownership of literary standards or style. I no longer give a fuck about what the papers have to say about books. It has mostly nothing to with the world of reading and writing, which is all I care about ... Are you fuck in charge of literature, the papers.
