BABEWATCH: Michiko Kakutani

July 22nd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Michiko Kakutani

Hails from: New Haven, CT

Occupation: Hardass Asian Book Reviewer

Why She’s a Babe: Because the 53 year-old, Yale-educated NY Times critic is notoriously hard to please. And she’s not afraid to savage overly-hyped douchebag writers who are used to being fawned over. (A few years ago, the late Norman Mailer called her a “token” and a “one-woman kamikaze.”) Also, her look is so very trapped-in-the-80′s. And because Michiko is something like a literary dominatrix who enjoys beating the shit out of books–and sometimes that brings pain, but other times, pleasure.
