When literature makes the news

Over the last few months, a debate has been raging in the National Post about the values of Canadian literature: What is it? Who writes it well? What do we think of it? etc. This piece by Steven Galloway is the latest article on this topic, and it's a really good read.

It may not exactly be about the books that are worth rereading, but it is about books and the world of literature, so it's at least a little bit relevant. Plus, with juicy lines such as "Novels are not twitter, they are not sitcoms and they are not action movies, and the moment they are, literature ceases to exist," how could you not be drawn into it?
