Criticism's Sting: The Author Curtis Sittenfeld On Book Reviews
from The New York Times
Jennifer Senior only recently became a book critic. In 2014, when her own book came out, she remembers living in deathly fear of the critic she is today. How many jobs involve submitting your work to the scrutiny of a paid corps of strangers? It seemed, at the time, like someone’s idea of a cruel joke. Now, as a person who writes reviews for a living, Senior is curious to know: How do professional authors handle unsparing criticism, written in just a few days or weeks, of something they’ve toiled over for years?
