When I saw this link on Arts Journal, I half suspected that Russell Smith might be behind it; he makes explicit the nuances that characterize the awful genre known as 'dick-lit'. I'm guessing that Smith doesn't include his own earlier works in this sub-par sub-category of, er, literature, despite both having a decidedly dick-lit-ish quality, with more emphasis on the whole problem of urban angst and less emphasis on the inherent emptiness of a life spent in singledom. At any rate, it is obvious that Smith holds much disdain for a genre that scoughs at everything that I presume he covets in his own urban quest for self-actualization.
