Sarah Vine tackles Pierre Baynard's new book Comment Parler des Livres que l’on n’a pas Lus (How to Talk About Books That You Haven’t Read) at TimesOnline: "Obviously I haven’t read Mr. Baynard’s book; but it is in the spirit of his oeuvre that I shall proceed to write about it anyway." (Hat tip to Arts & Letters Daily.)

Anyone who's had a longtime professional relationship with a particular editor (or favored author) will appreciate the mental models on the shoulders of Kieran Healy at Crooked Timber: "Henry remarks that 'my mental model of Tyler [Cowen] often sit[s] on my shoulder while I blog, making polite and well reasoned libertarian criticisms of my arguments.'" The jokes are better if you read the same blogs Healy does.
