Today’s Dictionary Crisis: Commercial with Literary Aspirations

Never let it be said that we bore easily — we’ve spent years being fascinated by the labels applied to writing. It’s now hard for us to believe that “narrative non-fiction” was once considered a wacky term. Adam Chromy (also known as Artists and Artisans…which, yes, makes us wonder what he considers the distinction) is probably feeling a bit proud of himself right now. He gave us pause as we considered a new-to-us phrase.

But enough about our problems. Chromy likes smart stuff, good writing, platform, commercial fiction with literary aspirations, and, probably, good beer. We’re just guessing on that last one.
