But my question is this: how, given the "diverse" shoutings on about what should and shouldn't be literature, are we going to be any different from the regular book of the month club?
Well, perhaps we should just proceed on the basis that we more or less know what it is when we see it rather than getting bogged down in explicit definitions of literary fiction. I am guessing we are getting involved in this because we all value literature and that we are all people of reasonably good will. Unless someone has the intention to be disruptive I can't see it being a problem.
