In which the term “Generation SLUT” is used

At Moby Lives, Caren Lissner argues that Generation Y lacks, and needs, a literary spokesperson. (See far left of page.)

In the letters section, Ian Spiegelman responds:

…. Teens and people in their early twenties don’t have a ‘literary spokesperson’ because they are teens and people in their early twenties…. nothing worth writing can be written without substantial time to process it—what did it mean, how did it really feel, as opposed to how you remember it feeling or how you’d expect it to feel. Most importantly, what’s the right word, sentence, rythm? You don’t get that by slapping together a few memories in Freshman year and hoping they stick.

(No permalinks.)
