by Jane Ciabattari | Jun-23-2010

The last review from Robert Pincus, laid off as San Diego Union-Tribune books and arts editor last week, in a reorganization predicted in March by Jeff Light, the newspaper's new editor.  In a note of protest to his editors, literary agent Sandy Dijkstra notes, "In her Nobel Prize acceptance speech, "Nadine Gordimer cited Camus’ warning:'One either serves the whole of man or does not serve him at all. And, If man needs bread and justice, and if what has to be done must be done to serve this need,he also needs pure beauty which is the bread of the heart.'”
