And while we're on the subject...

What is the criteria
for getting books reviewed by
the New York Times?

As posted above, Joseph Pearce,
editor and author of many
biographies on, among others,
Alexander Solzhenitsyn and
Oscar Wilde, is coming out
with another book in April,
The Quest for Shakespeare.

It can't be that the NYT
hasn't heard of these men...

So what's the problem?

Interesting. Perhaps its the author they're avoiding?

Why would that be, Nick? The New York Times prides itself on its standard of excellence.

Pearce has been turning out superb biographies for years - books on Tolkien and Belloc and C. S. Lewis and Chesterton and Roy Campbell, to name a few more...

I don't get it.
