Is bad writing really good?

The Oct. 24 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education has Carlin Romano's entertaining review of a recently-published collection Just being difficult?, which "poses the question ... : When is bad writing not so bad, even if it's terrible?"

Just being difficult? is a response to Dennis Dutton's Bad Writing Contest. It was written by some of the contest winners and their partisans.
