Many of you probably already saw this, but there's been some interesting 'debate' about Genre vs. Literary Fiction this week.
In The Guardian Edward Docx asked Are Stieg Larsson and Dan Brown a match for literary fiction? (He doesn't think so.) IMHO, one of the big draws of Larsson and Brown is story--they do a very good job sucking you into the plot.
Laura Miller explained Why we love bad writing at Salon.com.
I have another hypothesis: lots of genre writing is good writing. :)
Anyone else have any thoughts?
