The Exhaustion of Narrative

I've not been blogging lately because I've been up to my ears in novel rewrites, etc, etc, but there's an article in today's Guardian that struck me as important. Beyond the silver screen by screenwriter Paul Schrader is (as it's headline implies) primarily about movie storylines and 'one of a set of crises that afflict current cinema'. But I think what Schrader has to say has equal relevance to the written word. Interesting stuff.
