    I think it might be more along the lines of when Hemingway slammed Mickey Spillane & when they asked Spillane about it, to piss him off he said ‘Hemingway who?’ Kinda like ‘Yeah, whatever, don’t you have some fiction to write?’

    Ford ignorance make one wonder what literary figures or intellectuals he does know about. I wonder if the Ford’s have read any of Jane Jacobs works. They might have learned a little about how a city best works.

    Atwood isn’t a big deal. I know who she is, but she’s a fiction writer, you’ve either read her books or you haven’t (I haven’t & don’t plan to), unless you’re an English teacher it’s not really essential to doing well professionally. How else is Ford ignorant?
