Knox believes the future for literary fiction is not as bleak as some other commentators suggest. The place to start, according to Knox, 'is in thinking more about what we already know, in rephrasing our language, in questioning our own assumptions, and in assigning words their true value, rather than today's market price.'


  • Some sections of this article overlap with Knox's previously published 'Fiction as Reality Check', The Sydney Morning Herald, 14-15 January 2006.
