Maybe J.K. Rowling misses all the fighting now that He Who Must Not Be Named has been defeated, because she just opened up a can of
whoop literary criticism!
The Harry Potter author was at an event in NYC celebrating the launch of her new book, an adult novel called Casual Vacancy.
During the audience Q&A section, a fan asked what the difference was between the sex in her new book and in the megahit 50 Shades Of Grey. She said:
"The difference is that people have sex in my book, but no one enjoys it."
She and the moderator went on to say they didn't even try reading the book as they'd heard too often that it was "terrible."
Whoa! J.K. has already said publicly that she wouldn't read the bestseller. Is she trying to start a fight with the author?
We wonder if E.L. James is planning on responding. This could be a dirty fight! And if you've read 50 Shades, you know we mean DIRTY!
