For withdawing Kaavya Visnawathan’s book. The core principle here was, a theft. It’s great to see that the victim, Megan McCafferty, has prospered from the events and that Little, Brown has behaved so honorably. Its author, Visnawathan, has my sympathy. I hope she gets to keep her big advance and writes another book, truer to her own experience.
(Notwithstanding the fact that she drives a Range Rover, and brags about it. Privileged teenagers driving SUV’s—why are oil companies the only ones responsible for the mess we’re in?)
