More Nonsense from Giles Fraser
Giles Fraser is the vicar of Putney and a lecturer in philosophy at Wadham College, Oxford. He has attacked Humanism in the past and this latest article in The Guardian about the novel is just a veiled attack on Salman Rushdie. It is typical of work by an Anglican wishing to brow-beat lesser mortals into accepting him as a superior.
He pretends to know what a novel is, but without having won any prizes for such work, as far as I know.
He does not define a novel in the same way as my dictionary. By implication he rubbishes all the great novels written by his fellow Christians, but I doubt that was his intention.
I wrote a comment about another Guardian article he wrote in 2002. He is given a regular god slot in that paper. He hasn't learned since then.
We must not let such people get away with their nonsense unopposed.
