Literature, Genre, and Ambition

If you are not reading Olen Steinhauer’s work then you are missing a real treat (see here for example). Olen has had a blog for awhile but it has been neglected of late. He has returned, however, with some interesting thoughts on ambition, literature, and the potential of “genre”.

It kinda jumps off a post by Sarah this summer on cliches and gimmicks that had an interesting debate in the comment section.

So read ’em both. Plenty to chew on for writers, readers, and critics alike.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).
