Will Self said the novel was doomed and his son’s response was brutal. Literally

Here’s Will Self in the Guardian not entirely optimistic about the future of the novel.

Here’s a little bit of what he had to say in the Guardian Q&A.

‘I think the novel is absolutely doomed to become a marginal cultural form, along with easel painting and the classical symphony.’

Except that wasn’t the last word on the matter. Far from it, in fact, after Self’s son Luther appeared to join in the debate on Twitter.

But that’s not the killer line. This is.

The whole exchange was shared by Bethany Black on Twitter.

And the last word really should go to this person.
