McSweeney's slugfest

In the fine tradition of Dale Peck vs. Rick Moody and Jonathan Franzen vs. Oprah (not to mention Jonathan Franzen vs. pretty much every one else), another exciting literary feud is brewing! In yesterday's New York Times Book Review, Neal Pollock previewed his forthcoming memoir, whining about callous treatment at the hands of former boss Dave Eggers. Today, Eggers goes for the kidneys with an assault on Pollack's fact-checking abilities. Pollock's response? The wuss backs down.

Quick show of hands: Who's even remotely interested in either one of these guys anymore? I thought so.
