McInerney's Defence Of Fiction

"I write novels. In fact, I just finished one, which is one reason I was alarmed to hear VS Naipaul declaring recently, in an interview with the New York Times, that the novel was dead. Which would make me, I guess, a necrophiliac."

- From Jay McInerney's piece in The Guardian on the need for fiction after 9/11.
