For the past four years as a struggling novelist I have been getting my share of rejection letters from agents and editors who care to read through the ms of my debut novel THE DANGLING MAN --partial or full. Her's the latest one from a biggie.

"I think there's much to recommend your novel (or at least what I've seen of it) in terms of subject matter and indeed, the strength of your writing, but in the end, I don't feel it would be quite right for Picador - it just didn't strike me as quite innovative or distinctive enough..Sam Humphreys, Picador Editorial, Pan Macmillan.

Now, do you find any inconsistency in it? Or is it plain corny?
