This work contends that formula critics - like the formula fiction they consider - can't tell a silk purse from a sow's ear. George Garrett can, and he isn't afraid to say so, even when his judgements aren't fashionable. My Silk Purse and Yours shows the combative Garrett taking on everything from New York's literary star system to the work of Kurt Vonnegut and John Barth.
