Alter-ego reviewing

Michiko Kakutani reviews Truman Capote's new novel as Holly Golightly. Is this a new tack for Miss K? Will she review Philip Roth's new book as Nathan Zuckerman?

Incredibly annoying and extremely disrespectful.

I agree. That might be the most useless and pointless NYT review ever. As a gimmick, it sucks, and she already did it once.

And yeah, so, John Irving's new one as Garp?

I mean, didn't she review something as Holden Caulfield recently?

She did. It was Kunkel's Indecision she did as Holden. Ugh.
