Recently, I read a fascinating discussion between Neil Gaiman and Kasuo Ishiguro about blurring the boundaries between fantasy and literary fiction. Ishiguro has some elements of fantasy in his latest novel, The Buried Giant

 

The article is titled "Breaking the Boundaries Between Fantasy and Literary Fiction: A conversation between literary heavyweights"

 

 

You can find the article here:

If you read the article, what do you think? Can genre boundaries be blurred? Why should they be? Or why not? Is there such a thing as literary purity in what we write?
