Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Humiliation is not unique to writers. However, the world of letters does seem to offer a near-perfect micro-climate for embarrassment and shame. Here are over 80 stories about the writer's audience, the fellow readers, the organiser, the venue, the hospitality, or the often-interminable journey there and back.
