More literate on literature than the editor of the NY Review of Books

In an interview with the Financial Times, the novelist Tom Wolfe makes the following remarkable comment.

Bush is portrayed as a moron. I’ve only conversed with him a couple of times – not for very long – but I found he was more literate on literature than the editor of the New York Review of Books, Bob Silvers. I’ve talked to both of them, and he makes Bob Silvers look like a slug.”
