Mary Elizabeth Williams writes on Salon.com her views of the “Twitter controversy” regarding Alice Hoffman’s angry response to Roberta Silman’s scathing book review. Williams also mentions past exchanges between authors and reviewers, showing that while Hoffman may not be right, she is certainly not alone.

Williams brings up further feuds as evidence of the lengths authors go to in retaliation to a harsh reviewer.
