From Publishers Lunch, Citing Barbara Kingsolver from BEA

While “we are all jockeying for the attention of the reader, who we know call the consumer, trying to wrestle a little attention away from Angry Birds,” Kingsolver acknowledged that it has always been the case. “The literary reader is a small but probably stable demographic. We have our place. We absorb and pass on information in a way that endures…. The only thing that will resonate with the reader is those things that will stay true forever.”
