Favorable Reviews for the “Attack Critic”
Recently two bloggers read and reviewed Anatolia and Other Stories by Anis Shivani. Both reviewers became interested in Shivani’s work after reading his article for The Huffington Post titled “The 15 Most Overrated Contemporary American Writers“. When this article went live in August, the blogosphere and the world of social networking sites lit up. “Who does this guy think he is?” seemed to be the resounding response to the article.
The two bloggers who recently reviewed Shivani’s short story collection asked exactly this question as they read Anatolia and Other Stories. They seem to agree that, even though Shivani has developed a reputation for being an “attack critic” he also happens to be a very talented short story writer.
