Leaving TLS

Times [of London] Literary Supplement, that is, once unique, now run by a newspaper editor. Cancelling long-time subscription, I said this without being asked:

It’s the new editor, by the way. He is making TLS just another journal. Review after review I can take or leave. Before him, I couldn’t get through an issue, continually stopping to read about things I’d had no interest in previously. New man is a news man, whatever his student pedigree. Has mass market in mind, can’t help himself.

So it goes in the wild and woolly world of cultural leadership.
