A friend sent me the link to Famous Rejections today. I laughed out loud at some of them. One thing these rejections have that mine do not is an implication that the agent/publisher has read the book. I think I would much rather be told "… I recommend that it be buried under a stone for a thousand years" as in the case of Lolita, than receive a two-inch strip of paper with a generic message.
Or, maybe I wouldn't.
