The Debate About “Literary” Fiction

August 18, 2010

Though an unabashed lover of the “L” word, I haven’t paid much attention to the recent debate about whether “literary” fiction is still relevant or even still alive. Such discussions are generally too abstract for my taste; I’d rather be reading or writing the stuff than arguing about it. A post by Pens with Cojones, however, has some challenging remarks and links to other comments on the subject; it’s worth a look for the “L” folks who haven’t yet hidden under their beds and stopped taking phone calls.
