Jonathan Franzen book-slapped

Today in the Times, Michiko Kakutani published a scathing review of Jonathan Franzen's new memoir. I didn't read The Corrections because I thought it'd be awful, so I can't comment on him as a writer, but it was so much fun to watch him get smacked around in print. He seems like a giant asshole from what I've heard, anyway. Vilifying someone in well-written prose is an art we should definitely bring back.
