The Big Story

Put this in the Non Sequitur and I Wonder Why categories. Couldn’t possibly be because of the publishing industry:

“With the public still edgy from war and an uncertain economy, fiction continues to serve more as entertainment than enrichment. The big books have been escapist thrillers such as “The Da Vinci Code” and “The Historian,” and the fantasy blockbuster “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Not only have established literary authors disappointed critics, no major new literary voices have emerged.”
