As I Live And Read
Fang-Face writes "There's an interesting piece entitled
As I Live And Read, by Michael Dirda, of the Washington Post, in which he looks at the state of reading and literature. In the U.S., but I imagine that it holds for every technologized culture. A longish plaint about the abysmal quality of what passes for "literature" in this day and age. Well worth the read, although it has the standard complaints about the impact of the internet."
