I like that comment about plot. That "literary" types don't like plot because life is plotless and literature should be close to "life" as it really is... Well... I don't read to enjoy a carbon copy of real life, thank you very much. I read to be pulled out of real life into a world of imagination or distortion of reality. That reminds me of these arty, unwatchable movies that capture the minutiae of a housewife's life. Hey, give me "Jaws" anytime, lol! I wish the notion of genre not being literature was long dead and buried. Anybody who snubs John Le Carré because he wrote "spy novels" is a blooming idiot.
