Well, maybe not …

zmkc: Get with the Programme.
Since when have we started judging fiction by subject matter? So much for - well the list of books that would be found wanting if that's the standard is so long that I really don't know where to begin. The idea that subject matter should be the first port of call when making a judgment about a work of art is a very dangerous one - it points directly to a road marked “censorship”.

I think that I too shall “ retreat into the glorified past of literature published before this year.”
