Estaremos a chegar ao fim da crítica literária na imprensa?

«In America, the decline of the literary pages has been lamented for some years. The National Book Critics Circle, launching "a campaign to save book reviews", reported that they had been "cut back or slashed altogether, moved, winnowed, filled with more wire copy, or generally treated as expendable". The New Republic magazine has called it "a kind of betrayal" from inside the print industry.
