Thornton P. Knowles On The Art Of Boredom

So-called "Literary" novelists avoid great plots and exciting, dramatic storytelling because these pretentious, showoff writers associate such qualities with genre fiction. Moreover, writing a novel a reader can't put down takes a degree of literary talent "literary" writers do not possess.  Essentially, "literary" novelists practice the art of boredom. Their books are not written to be read but to be possessed by readers trying to appear literarily sophisticated. The whole literary fiction game is really quite fraudulent.
