I've just found a really good quote for my ECA in yesterday's Observer, shame I had to hand it in by the 28th September, if you don't know what an ECA is check out Belle's blog, but in essence it was all about judging literature and the distinctions between canonical and popular literature. Kate Mosse, no not the supermodel but the one who co-founded the Orange Prize, dismissed this whole question with 'You can't compare a cheese sandwich with foie gras. The only question is: is it a good or bad cheese sandwich? Is it good or bad foie gras?'. Brilliant. Sadly I thought her book was a cheesy foie gras sandwich, but you can't win them all.
