Innocence and Experience: Peter Terzian’s interview with Alan Hollinghurst

And while I’m in sales mode, here in one place are all five of the recent numbered posts in which I come perilously close to arguing that people who voted for Bush probably cannot read. The hope is that the posts make more sense if read in order, rather than backwards. But perhaps not. I share with Scott McLemee doubts about the “use” of writing, doubts reminiscent of those I felt three years and two months ago.
