I LIKE TO OAT, OAT, OAT

Penny. 23. Female. I like to read books (and oat, oat, oat).

i know you think genre is mostly a scam, but what genre do you think Wolf In White Van would be considered? i'm writing a report on it and my teacher is crazy about this kind of stuff. thanks and i love your music and writing!!

johndarnielle:

People think I’m being catty if I answer a question with too few words so I gotta couch this one in a preamble and postscript, but the actual whole answer is “fiction.” That’s really all: fiction. I think Amazon has it down as “literary fiction,” I’m not really sure what that means precisely because of my “what really is the function of genre classification?” reservations but you could probably sneak that one past your teacher, genre fiends are duty-bound to love a category like “literary fiction.” And what do I know, maybe they’re right: sometimes I’ll pick up a book and get about halfway through it and think “I want something that’s more about asking questions, or creating a space in which questions get asked, than about explaining to me what things happened and how” — this, maybe, is the space of “literary fiction”? But my gut says “no,” The Worm Ouroboros is as “literate” as Gogol and I love them both, but at the same time I get that there’re books that tell you a story and there are books that ask you “what’s this story about?” and I think the latter get called “literary fiction” but if I’m you in this situation I plant my FICTION flag on the unbroken ground and see what happens.
