The Novel, 2.0

Slate's roundtable on the state of the novel in the digital world, featuring Walter Kirn and Gary Shteyngart: The Novel, 2.0. Example of the goodness: "I read somewhere once that in the 1960s fiction writers were troubled by the notion that life was becoming stranger and more sensational than made-up stories could ever hope to be. Our new problem -- more profound, I think -- is that life no longer resembles a story. Events intersect but don't progress. People interact but don't make contact. Settings shift but don't necessarily change."
