Literature Summarized

Anthony Burgess said there are two kinds of writers, A-writers and B-writers. A-writers are storytellers, B-writers are users of language. [...] [I]f the prose isn’t there, then you’re reduced to what are merely secondary interests, like story, plot, characterization, psychological insight and form.
