Experience: Priced To Sell
The site for my brother's art gallery is now up and running.
Is it 10 years already?
The lost art of narrative. Great article by Catherine Gardner on the decline of short stories in England, which manages to touch on Walter Benjamin's essays (experience has lost all value, information has replaced narrative), the unique relationship in the U.S. between short fiction and film, and the art of adaptation. People have largely forgotten how to tell stories, even in fiction, where 'traditional' narrative has been under attack for a century now' it startles me that in Britain this is percieved as worse than here in the States. I would have thought it the opposite.
