CRITICAL LINKING: Last Week’s Greatest Hits

Here are the most read stories from the week in Critical Linking


“Editors, copy editors, and proofreaders, please clean up your act, do your job, and learn the f**king rules!”

All I see here is the Oxford comma.


“Why the quotation marks around my name? “James Wood” and James Wood are one and the same.”

James Wood responds in the comments section of Jonathan Lethem’s critique of him at The MillionsWild stuff.


“Two weeks late and over 10 pounds, the child had to be cut by a team of doctors from my body, which in turn responded by hemorrhaging massive amounts of blood.”

Say what you will about the Twilight series, but it inspires some pretty interesting commentary.


“I want to be in a Christmas Gap ad with Zadie Smith.”

Mindy Kaling on the writers she reads.
