Twitter, litteraturkritiken och… Jonathan Franzen

”‘Twenty years from now, the people writing literary criticism will not have known a world without Twitter,’ Jennifer Weiner, the best-selling novelist and Twitter aficionado, said in a phone conversation, adding that the technology has destabilized the model of the literary ‘soliloquy’ found in prestigious publications like The New York Review of Books and The New Yorker. ‘Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing won’t matter — it will be a fact … Franzen’s 6,400-word piece in The Guardian may be the last cry of the last dinosaur going down for the last time in the tar pit.’”Citerat ur Anna Holmes och Adam Kirsch ”How Has Twitter Changed the Role of the Literary Critic?” som ingår i den alltid lika läsvärda serien Bookends i New York Times. Serien presenteras så här: ”Each week in Bookends, two writers take on pressing and provocative questions about the world of books.” Undrar vi: Hur provocerande är Jonathan Franzens syn på sociala medier, egentligen?
