Do you ever wonder why so many people don’t want to pick up any literary fiction? Why the sales for literary fiction are continuously declining? And why so many young people don’t even consider picking up a book that belongs to this genre?
Contrary to popular belief among book snobs, people who read thrillers, fantasy and YA do not lack synapses or brain cells to understand literary fiction. In most cases, it’s not even a question of maturity and intelligence. Sure, some people, especially young readers do not read literary fiction because it might be too difficult to grasp, but the majority of people who read other genres are just not interested.
