Foer Facts

I haven’t been linking to all the Jonathan Safran Foer press that much, mostly because all the brouhaha bores me to tears but I did actually read this profile in the Financial Times (of all places). In it, Foer says that the “meanest reviews” he’s gotten for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close in the U.S. were by authors whose novels don’t have an audience. “I would never say that to them,” he says, “but it’s an indisputable fact.” Might not be such a great idea to tell a journalist about it, then.
