  • ad publicity is better than none, of course, but after a time you could no longer ignore an odor of smoke, and it wasn't your usual book-chat roast. It began to seem like a witch trial. Harrison has been accused of being a liar, an opportunist, a traitor to all segments of her family, an unfit mother, to have written the book solely for the money or the attention--everything short of having fucked her father in order to write about it. The Kiss has been called "slimy, repellent, meretricious, cynical" by Jonathan Yardley in the Washington Post, and things to that effect by sundry others. The New Republic's teaser triumphantly reads: "James Wolcott Smacks Kathryn Harrison in the Kisser."
