In which Robin Robertson is asked some dumb questions...

...and gives them precisely what they deserve.

Yeah, I read this and thought the exact same thing.

The Globe's Judith Fitzgerald should take some direction from Eleanor Wachtel's playbook: Don't ever ask an author a question that doesn't prove conclusively that you've done a close reading of his or her work. And don't ever ask an author a boilerplate question that could be asked to any author. It's insulting.

I shutter to think how Martin Amis would have handled such inane questions.
