Literary Hierarchies in Fiction

Character trumps language.

Language trumps plot.

Plot trumps setting, unless setting is a character.

One thought on “Literary Hierarchies in Fiction

  1. Written in the days when trump was still a verb…

    I have just finished reading your novel, Daniel, purchased at the QWF Pop-up sale in Montreal this December (from Linda Leith herself) and wanted to let you know I enjoyed it very much. I liked the voices in the novel and the inner workings of Canadian politics – so realistic that I kept googling to see if I could figure out the composite. (I couldn’t.) I also liked seeing the window into Eli’s life at home and how he viewed his wife viewing him.

    I have given it to my brother-in-law for Christmas, who does not tend to read novels but who is very much a reader. We’ll see. My sister is still working on my husband with the likes of Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography. We’ll see about that too.
