Best-Selling Author Throws Twitter Fit After Snub From The New York Times' End-Of-Year List

"Love & Treasure is a fucking great novel..."

Posted on

Ayelet Waldman, the author of several successful novels, has poured out a torrent of disappointment in not being included in The New York Times "100 Notable Books of 2014" list.

Waldman, who this year wrote the WWII-era novel Love and Treasure, was "demoralized" that some books that did place on the list were "NOWHERE near as good as [hers]."

Waldman later turned to Facebook, where she pledged to donate one dollar for every person who pre-ordered her book in paperback.

Most of the tweets have since been deleted, with Waldman writing a lengthy status on her Facebook to (sort of) apologize for her outburst.

But not before she became the butt of a few jokes on social media.

Ayelet Waldman incensed that all #tbt photographs aren't of her book. "No back has been thrown even CLOSE to the quality of mine."

Ayelet Waldman, meanwhile, has written a blog about her disgust at being left out of the new Bond cast. And that it's not called "Ayelet".
