The Death of Fiction?

The Death of Fiction?
From Mother Jones’ January/February 2010 issue.

The editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review laments the death of the short story. He wields his blame thrower, hitting all the right targets. (Universities, writers, economy…)

My favorite line:

You may be a precious snowflake, but if you can’t express your individuality in sterling prose, I don’t want to read about it.
