Brad Meltzer is my hero.
After getting lambasted by several influential critics before his novel, Book of Lies, even came out, he didn’t take offense. Nope. And he didn’t cry foul. Not even close.
He made a video about it!
Good for you, Brad. Not for writing a bad novel (and is it really that bad? Now I want to read it to find out!), but for having enough of a sense of humor to laugh about it.
