You’ll Be Okay Part II
Timothy Moran is a man with a lot of time on his hands. I wrote a post about You’ll Be Okay (My Life With Jack Kerouac) by Edie Kerouac Parker which was co-edited by Timothy Moran.
I mentioned that the writing was god-awful and to look at it on Google books if you wanted. Timothy Moran (who must troll the internet for people talking about his book) commented:
Considering that Moran didn’t know enough about grammar to make “with” in the title of the book lowercase, I will stand by my statement that the writing is god awful. If you are creating something in order to put it on the market, you must be able to handle criticism. I understand being hurt by criticism, not everyone has loved my site. As a writer/editor you are making yourself vulnerable to the world. However, that is the risk you are taking. If you are lucky enough to be published, you are cursed enough to be criticized.
That being said, Edie’s autobiography wasn’t completely useless (and I pointed this out in my original post). It did answer my questions about Kerouac’s presence in Grosse Pointe.
He has been continuing a spam campaign of idiocy on my site, so feel free to browse the comments and check out his notes. I’m sure he’ll be in the comments of this post in no time. Google Alerts work wonders.
