IS THE NOVEL DEAD? Or in a care home? Or maybe in an RV?

Was Will Self getting at me as an author on the road?

Interviewed at the Melbourne Writers' Festival here in Australia, Booker prize contender Will Self (The Umbrella, The Shark) denied that he ever said the novel was dead.

What he said was "The novel is in a care home. Or in Australia it would be in an RV".

Is this me?
