It’s true: No one is harder on you than you are to yourself. Until the critic walks in, that is. Critics can creep from the dregs of nearly any literary form, and it’s not just the books that get the beating. Often authors are at the receiving end of cruel comments. Critique can come in many forms: publications, other authors, Amazon reviews…it’s the many-headed hydra of literature.
So take a minute to bend your spine towards disdain and get your scolding face ready. Can you guess these authors based on another’s scornful critique?
Thanks to the book reviewers of Flavorwire, The New York Times, and Amazon for these delightfully scornful reviews!
