REGARDING THE NYT'S piece on new writers surrounding the small literary magazine n+1 and constitutive of a generational movement toward which Eggers's systematically overvalued 'Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius' is meant to be emblematic, I'm for some reason reminded of Evelyn Waugh's letter of rebuke to the Spectator in 1954, 'Please let the young people of today get on with their work alone and be treated to the courtesy of individual attention. They are the less, not the more, interesting, if they are treated as a "Movement".'
