WHAT'S "BOLLOCKS" IN AMERICAN?

Anna Quindlen's new book, "Imagined London" is given a tough time by Independent reviewer, Nicholas Royle, who declares it "less 'a tour of the world's greatest fictional city' than a guide to breathtaking ignorance." He obviously doesn't fancy a career in diplomacy:

"How can she wander along Elgin Crescent and not think of Emma Tennant or Angela Carter? Neither Iain Sinclair nor Michael Moorcock is mentioned. 'And modern London, like most other great capitals,' she writes, 'has become more like everywhere else in a way that makes specificity in writing about it both less possible and less useful.'

Daft bollocks."
