Who Wrote The Ken Wells Book Review In 'Portfolio'?
Finally found the November Porfolio last night! (It's slowly trickling downtown where the poors live.) You know what was striking? There are seven book reviews in it—6 of them between 100 and 200 words, each of those with a byline. But occupying one-third of page 150 is an unbylined review of "Crawfish Mountain," a new book by Portfolio's own senior editor Ken Wells! It's an extraordinarily detailed plot summary, and is headlined "From Our Staff." Whoever wrote it sure does know the book inside and out—at the very least, we can sure confirm that it's a terrible editorial call to have run this without a byline.
