…And If You Still Want More on The Pale King

By posted at 11:37 am on April 2, 2011 2

I can’t recommend John Jeremiah Sullivan‘s 7,000-word article on The Pale King highly enough – not because he gets everything right, but because it’s what long-form writing about books should look like: passionate, lucid, wide-ranging, and awfully fun to read. I salute GQ for running it, and hope to see more literary coverage there in the future.

    Great read. Almost as good as your NY Mag piece, Garth.
