Okay. This Ishmael Reed obituary for Stanley Crouch is a settling of scores like I've never seen in my life.
I was..not prepared for this. Nobody does shade or offer up receipts like our elders. Whew!
You have to REALLLLLY hate a person to write this after they die... Ishmael Reed is defintiely 1 of 1.
The drama of the literary intelligentsia
No grudge like a literary grudge. Ishmael Reed offers an incineration of a eulogy for Stanley Crouch, with many more singed along the way.
I learned from this that The Tablet has ALWAYS been The Tablet.
