I’m not sure this is worth mentioning, but the quote by me that is called a “negative review” by Vanessa Place is out of context. The words are all mine but they are part of a discussion with Perloff about her reading of Place’s book, a reading that I disagreed with. The words are not a review, negative or otherwise, of Place’s book. And I do not think that Place’s book implies an easy yes answer to any of those questions.

I would probably say something similar also about Fama’s quote in its original context. The quote from Fama that Place quotes is about the content of the book. This content, and I thought this was one of Place’s points, is horrifying.
