Hi Teresa - fair enough, though one book seems a little harsh but I take your point.
Hi Judge, censorship probably is too strong a word. And you are spot on about the difference candour and tactlessness. And my own naivety.
I should probably indulge in a little self-censorship and move from negative to a more constructive form of criticism - but then I had this vision of a bunch of published writers in a room lined with their own books, agreeing that all was for the best in the best of all possible worlds - a variation on Sartre's Huis Clos.
