Was there a last-minute cancellation that Leonard Lopate had to air an interview with the self-important Ms. Collins, whose characters "just come to me as I write"? (It shows.) Isn't this a little bit like PBS airing "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"? Are you saying that not a single author of good literary fiction was available instead? Why give free press to someone who clearly doesn't need it, and whose books would make better doorstops than reading material?
