Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Genocides by aesthetes? Hmmm, well, Goebbels was a Lit. major. Of course, the one thing that redeemed him is that he saved Hermann Broch at James Joyce's request.

I checked to see if some of the best books of fiction in the last 2 years had been reviewed in the NYT. 80% of them have. I read a lot of fiction, and I do believe American fiction is alive and well. Currently I'm reading recent books by Percival Everett and Shelley Jackson, two excellent writers who haven't been reviewed by the NYT.

I really don't think the Jews' taste in fiction was the reasoning for the Holocaust.
