I like it!

Reminds me of a radio talk show I heard a year or two ago, probably 
"Nightwaves".  They were having quite a heated discussion (well, heated 
for Radio 3, anyway) about writing, and one of the panellists jumped in 
with "Well, if you consider a really good writer, like Diana Wynne Jones..."

This was on the car radio, and it kept me smiling the rest of the journey.
