PAUL HOLMES DISPLAYS HIS IGNORANCE & ARROGANCE
IN THE HERALD ON SUNDAY
Here he is in the final paragraph of his weekly column:
If I see a book that has won a Pulitzer Prize, I always get it. It will always be a stunner. If I see it has won the Booker Prize I know it will be a bore of a thing and avoid it like the plague. Ditto the recommendations of the Listener or the Sunday Star Times, both of which might one day start to review the books that people read. Or at least the books that men read.
My suggestion to Holmes is that he sticks to waffling on about current affairs on talk-back radio rather than making himself look a prize dork with nonsense like this.
