Stirring up the hornets …

… Crime writers mystified by Colm Tóibín’s criticism. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

I’m not sure I get the distinction between literary fiction and genre fiction. So if I like Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw I shouldn’t like Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island? James and Stevenson were friends. I just read books. I don’t get involved with pigeonholing them.
