And so, finally, for the record, whatever else you get out of this post, know this: I’m excited about Inferno. Aren’t you? If Brown’s not your thing, don’t read it. But don’t be a jerk about proving how literary you are by ignoring Brown. We get it. That’s fine. On the other hand, if you like Brown and his stories, or are amused by him, or simply want the right to have an opinion, then you should be excited for Inferno. For better or worse, it IS a literary event. And it WILL get people talking about and buying books. And that’s ALWAYS a good thing.
