adj.— «The publisher—Farrar, Straus and Giroux—is selling it as a “brilliant gem” and a “work of unsurpassed originality,” in the words of the book jacket. But it feels a tad “merchy,” as they say in publishing. It would not look out of place on the books table at Urban Outfitters.» —“Jealous much?” by Rebecca Tuhus-Dubrow Salon Nov. 16, 2006.
