NY Times Responds to BB Note/Critique (fwd)
From: "Johnson, Kurt" <JohnsonK@Coudert.com>

Interestingly, re the NYTimes.com Book Forums choice of BB's book on Pale
Fire as their July discussion book, after an off the cuff remark by me on
NYTimes.com Forums re their homepage notation of BB's book on Pale Fire as
"quirky", there was an email posted on the Forum by the Producer saying that
they would change the description to "passionate and intricate". I don't
think we knew "big brother" was watching but that seems to be a generous
