dbc pierre and rewriting

Was the first part of the novel over-written, asked another. Probably, Pierre confessed, for he had gone over it hundreds of times: every day when he had sat down at his desk, he had begun reading his book from the beginning, and amending as he read. The ending, in contrast, was done just a couple of times, giving ammunition to the blogger on the book club website who thought that the novelist had snatched his ending.
