I love Leigh Feldman, even though she rejected me (twice actually). Still she is a class act all the way. Her rejection says: "I got to read your [name of story collection] over the holidays. While it's a wonderful body of work, I came (yet again with your writing) to unavoidable reservations aboutthe project. There is an enormous resistance to short fiction these days and I'm not sure this collection is distinctive enough to stand as exception. The opportunities for smart, solid, and finely written stories are sadly few." Then she offers me a few other agents to try, which is very nice. Don't you think? Wish she had loved it, though.
