Bush tax cuts = great fiction? Discuss.

Ah, lovely synchronicity. Here sallyrei and I were discussing self-publishing, and 24 hours later I stumble across this remarkable review with a self-published author. It begins with the journalist informing said author that he thinks the book is "the worst novel ever published in the English language", and it just gets better from there.

My question is: is Burrows going to look back on this as the high point in his writing career, or the pits?

At least we can safely set aside any fears that millions of impressionable teenagers with dreams of nation-wide fame will start scribbling out their own derivative opuses of economic policy fiction (a new genre of one?). Though really, that might be preferable to the continuing reams of illiterary Harry Potter fanfics we'll get instead.
