Is there or isn’t there? A Guardian take on Literary Fiction.

One sentence in the opening of this article jumps out at me – ‘Jane Austen…wrote fiction to entertain and to make money. And that is what we novelists have been doing ever since, or should have been doing.’

Do you agree? Should these be a novelist’s two primary aims – 1) to entertain

2) to make money

Let me know what you think.
