The Novelist's Complicity
< 1 day ago
"Great television is taking over the space occupied by many novels", writes Zia Haider Rahman "and taking with it many excellent writers".
He says that many novels have already moved in the direction of the televisual - written with an eye to a film or TV adaptation.
"If novelists are relinquishing the very things that are exclusively the province of the novel", he writes, "then they are complicit in the demise of the novel".

a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
conservatives today could unscrew their faces once and get a clue. Everyone does
what they want without regard to national political agendas.
