Book Chat?

I think you have a duty to contribute, to go on contributing to what Gore Vidal callsbook chat.” For certain self-interested reasons, you want to keep standards up so that when your next book comes out, it’s more likely that people will get the hang of it. I have no admiration for writers who think at a certain point they can wash their hands of book chat. You should be part of the ongoing debate.
