Dear Gunnar,
   
  Unless one quoted the title, and in that case only 'The Waste Land'
  would be appropriate, I suppose one could use "wasteland" -- as 
  the NYT article uses the expression, even if it refers to Eliot's 
  wasteland -- not the poem but the cultural wasteland he portrays.
   
  Please mark the expression "a cultural wasteland" at 
   
  http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/wasteland
   
  Regards,
   
  CR

    Thanks, CR -- intersting stuff!
  Isn't "Wasteland" by the NYT Book Section a tad sloppy?
  

  Cheers,
  

  Gunnar
