Books: Dog Days

I haven't read this book yet, but based on this Washington Post article, I think I might want to:

Creative writing teachers should be purged until every last instructor who has uttered the words "Write what you know" is confined to a labor camp. Please, talented scribblers, write what you don't. The blind guy with the funny little harp who composed The Iliad , how much combat do you think he saw?

I shamelessly stole this from Wizbang. Any laugh you get from this should be credited to Kevin, not me.

Just for the record, I'm anti-labor camp and pro-Homer.
