Hoot!

Frank Campbell begins his review of Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road rather elegantly in this morning's Weekend Australian/Review:
Harry Potter, that vast liquid cyst bloating the belly of literature like a mock pregnancy, invites misconceived admiration. If it's a real Quest you be wanting, me hearties, and not a sac of diluted Tolkien and Blyton, try Michael Chabon.

Nice metaphor! Kind of reminds me of the wonderful China Mieville calling Tolkien "a wen on the arse of fantasy literature."

Ouch.
