Is the literary world elitist?

from Salon

"The machine of consumerism is designed to encourage us all to believe that our preferences are significant and self-revealing; that a taste for Coke over Pepsi, or for KFC over McDonald's, means something about us; that our tastes comprise, in sum, a kind of aggregate expression of our unique selfhood." Eleanor Catton's essay about elitism in literature would be indelible for that one beautifully articulated observation alone, but the rest of it is pretty brilliant, too. more
