| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

From the Independent:

"The novelist V S Naipaul has damned the achievements of his literary contemporaries by declaring that there are 'no more great writers.'"

"He made his outspoken comments while at a launch of a new magazine at the Wallace Collection, in London. 'Publishing has gone down in quality so much in recent years and the problem is that there is no literary life any more because there are quite simply no more great writers,' he said."

Does this include the author of A House for Mr. Biswas?
