"One of the open secrets of literary life is that it's easier to get a book deal for a first novel, or for a work of nonfiction, than it is to get a short story or an article published in a serious magazine. This is because book publishing now revolves less around the book itself than around the marketability of the author--physical appearance; ethnicity, race, religion or sexuality; media or social connections--while serious magazine publishing, for all of its shortcomings, is still about writing"
The Nation

Praise Allah for being a gay, vegetarian, pseudo Jew!

p.s. Serious magazines? Anyone been to a newsagent lately? If it's not a close-up of a pimple on Britney's shoulder (no, not her husband), it's a lad mag with more exposed tits than the London zoo aviary (see what I did there?).
 

Yeah, yeah, email me
