In the cavalcade of idiocy that passes through the popular culture, nothing has had more staying power in recent years than The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s hatchet job on the legend of the Holy Grail. Listed on the New York Times bestseller list for approximately 42,000 weeks, it was made into an excruciatingly dull but popular movie. In the end, everybody got rich, which is all that really matters.
A host of truly awful books followed, including one that will surely become a camp . . .
