Prosecuting Literary Fiction For Boredom

Imagine, if you will, a book on trial for being boring. Imagine the arguments: the solid citizens called by the prosecution to testify that this book bored them senseless. Imagine the authors and hip professors brought in by the defense to assert that the book was not boring at all, but on the contrary, a work of great and lasting interest.

James Parker, The New York Times Book Review, July 20, 2014
