Life After The New York Times Book Review

LA literary blogger and author Mark Sarvas is proof that being pilloried in New York Times Book Review isn't the end of the world.

Despite the skewering he received in that most-revered of New York publications, Sarvas, who bangs out The Elegant Variation here in Los Angeles, has received praise from several other respected corners of the literary world this year for his debut novel HARRY REVISED. And this month it was named a "Good Read of 2008" by a critic for the Denver Post.

Publishers Weekly said back in May that "there may be legions of writers spurned by his blog just willing for Sarvas to fail," but yours truly is not one of them.

Here's to Mark and his creation, Harry Rent, a good reason to order a sandwich and keep reading, regardless of whether you're late for that appointment.
