Back and forth

2017-09-19-back-and-forth
There's an interesting article on Jezebel about a New York Times review of Vanessa Grigoriadis’s new book, Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power and Consent on Campus. From the Times' perspective, the book was fundamentally flawed—full of critical reporting errors. But as other reviewers and the author pointed out, the Times critic had to go back and post some major corrections to her review. This did not, however, cause her to change her basic assessment, and the whole thing left me with a strong sense that I am not the only book critic out there who really hates going back on a first impression.
