Writing from experience.

This is a subject I would like to come back to some time, but in the meantime here is a letter in the Guardian from an as always level-headed Hari Kunzru on the subject of whether you should only write from your own experience and background. It was in reponse to this article about Monica Ali's Brick Lane and the furore that has plagued it at times.

I found that article on Brick Lane absolutely fascinating.
Great enjoyed your piece on the shitty first draft! And yes what an amazing blogger Emma Darwin proves to be. How does she have time to write all that stuff?!
