The Novel as a Tool for Survival

Arthur Krystal’s essay “The Novel as a Tool for Survival” is one of the finest pieces of writing I’ve ever come across on the existential power of literature.

Krystal limns meat onto the most ineffable dynamics of literature.

(I’m also currently halfway through uber-literary-critic James Woods’ new book How Fiction Works).
