Private: Alfau calls contemporary literature “a waste”

Felipe Alfau (whose Chromos I borrowed from Koalelu, enjoyed greatly, and never returned) has ideas about saving contemporary literature:

I hate full-time authors. I hate intellectuals that make a living from abstractions and evasions. The art of writing has turned into an excess. Today, literature is a waste. It should be abolished, at least in the form we know: as a money-making endeavor.
