The novelist T. C. Boyle says that he never reads genre literature. 
He never reads it, he says, because all genre literature is BAD. In 
fact, he says this often in interviews.

How would Boyle know about genre literature if he never read it?

It seems to me that Eagleton may be like Boyle. He's never read 
Durrell, but he already knows that Durrell is BAD.
