The Millions : Why Are So Many Literary Writers Shifting into Genre?

This essay is particularly relevant to me, in that there are genre elements in what I write, although when you view a complete work of mine, you don't see a mystery, or a thriller, or a clean-cut accounting of history. I think neither of Kim Wright's propositions are completely true; most of us write with genre elements folded into our work, but that's more a function of what we read for entertainment than an evolutionary step in the literary novel. One might as well ask if cinema is the next step in literary writing.
