How does one stay informed within the realms of contemporary literature?
Are you part of any comunity, online or otherwise, aside from /lit/?
It goes without saying that every great piece of writing ever to be published, was once in the contemporary, so it also goes without saying that our currant contemporary should be no different.
Personally, I mainly read books published between 1960-2000, which I class, in my own mind, to be semi-contemporary, but I'd own very few books post Y2K.
How can you justify reading something contemporary, of questionable hype and/or critical aclaim, over something older, with a more subjective promise?
