Universal Stories, etc.

My friend Lewis DeSimone has published an interesting meditation on “universality” in fiction, the publishing business, and the notion of the closet. These are things I’ve thought about a fair bit myself (and discussed with Lewis on a couple of occasions) so I read his piece with great interest, and though I could quibble with some terminology – after all I can quibble with just about anything – I think he makes some serious points here and raises questions about which anyone who cares for literature might well reflect.
