    That’s why I like tractatus is great. All books should be written like that. It invented twitter

    James Joyce wasn't too clever for novels, so I doubt that's true.

    I know you're just being provocative of course and as usual I'm falling for it.

    But he had to wack all sorts of cleaver numerical systems in it and all that to make it stimulating. He had to turn it into algebra.

    I love a good yarn.

    Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. That's a great book. More pleasure in it than the collected works of Michel Foucault.

    The pleasure principle.

    That's what his critics had to do.

    Besides, he loved Tolstoy, Flaubert, even I dare say Dickens.

    Saying it's childish to like stories is like saying it's childish to like songs.

    Saying that I think the novel as a form is exhausted. I'd be surprised if the best minds today are engaged in writing novels. Joyce essentially torpedoed the whole form with Ulysses, didn't he?

    Nowadays it's either retrograde stuff like 'The Corrections' or tiresome postmodern shit like David Eggers.

    It's like the most talented musicians aren't making disco anymore, that's all been done.

    There's probably something in this, I think I'm clogged with influences from literature
