We don’t think it’s a surprise that we like our literary fare mixed with a dose of…fun. How else to wash the bad taste from the mouth after slogging through pages of characters we want to die (or our guilt when we cheer at said characters’ deaths)? Andrew Wylie wishes the public didn’t devour novels like Peyton Place (which the Literary Saloon points out is still in print, contrary to Wylie’s belief). We admire Wylie’s decision to only represent and sell those books he enjoys reading; we also assert our right to read anything without condescension.
