Literary Fiction And Genre Fiction May Overlap, But They're Not The Same Thing
"After all, literary fiction can be plotted just as vigorously as genre fiction (though it doesn't have to be). ... A good mystery or thriller isn't set off from an accomplished literary novel by plotting, but by the writer's sensibility, his purpose in writing, and the choices he makes to communicate that purpose." The New Yorker 10/24/12
