Which ‘Hoity-Toity’ Author Wants ‘Chick-Lit Love’?

jenniferw Which Hoity Toity Author Wants Chick Lit Love?You know what we like? Feuds involving people named “Weiner.”

This time it’s novelist Jennifer Weiner, who took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to announce her displeasure at a recent blurb request. It seems an editor sent along a memoir by a writer (“Ms. Hoity-Toity”) known to scorn Ms. Weiner’s chosen genre, chick lit. And–bad to worse–the editor misspelled Weiner’s name. The clues provided thus far:

- Author is an “ex-big-city-book-critic.”

- Author “once called all chick-lit writers a pack of pathetic Jay McInerney wannabes.”

- Memoir will be released in August.

We are drawing a blank, but that’s OK: It’s Friday of Memorial Day Weekend and the city already feels awful sleepy–we’ll take a blind item. Keep it coming, Weiners of the world.
