1) Lev Grossman chats shit about plot, Modernists and “the novel”. Andrew Seal and Matthew Cheney school him.

2) Also chatting shit is David Denby who says down with snark but unfortunately doesn’t even understand what snark is. Despite this major impediment he somehow even managed to spin a book out of this.
