From Scott McConnell:
1/So my wife met with an old friend of ours. She’s a novelist, moderately accomplished (good novels, mainstream publishers, modest sales) For her next one, enthusiastically received by agent/publishers, she was told . . .
2/ as white author, not allowed to have any character speak in vernacular (though this person very familiar w. it though many teaching jobs). 2/Not allowed to have any character make any jokes about Jews. (she’s been intermarried for decades).. .
3/ the diversity regime is going to suck the soul out of American literature.
I don’t really know the answer. Obviously immigrants don’t come with the purpose of ending American freedom, at least most. But that is the result. Bonfire of the Vanities could not be published today.
My initial reaction would be that authors would migrate to fantasy or sci-fi, but those fields seem to have even nuttier Thought Policemen than realistic fiction.
