David Ulin on Theresa Duncan

LAT book editor David Ulin joins the chorus of elderly beaus who loved the late Theresa Duncan’s work.
Blogging at Jacket Copy, he references the posthumous TS Eliot poem that appeared on New Year’s Eve. He says:

I was an admirer of Theresa Duncan; her blog, the Wit of the Staircase, was one of the smartest, least predictable aesthetic experiments on the Internet, a mash-up of intellectual rigor, artistic attitude and fan-girl obsession, filtered through a world-weary yet endearing voice.

No mention of the plagiarized entries, which even Ron Rosenbaum acknowledged.

Update:

Ulin’s comments on blogs as compliations sidesteps the plagarism question.
