This is interesting because we talked a lot about that concept of “plot” last night in my fiction class. Can fiction be “literary” if it’s got a great plot?

Local Dog Is Unimpressed With Wine Selection
Einar, a 3-year-old French Bulldog who recently moved from Norway to Brooklyn, NY, has so far been unimpressed with the wine selection at local restaurants.
"He heard New York was a foodie town," said friend Kilian Meyer. "He was excited to sample the local fare."
But so far, said Meyer, the dog hasn’t been thrilled by what he’s found.
"The food has been to his liking, I think," he said, "but the wine pairings have been awful. I mean, yesterday he ordered a can of beef and peas Pedigree and the sommelier paired it with a Riesling. Seriously? Everyone know you need a full-bodied red for that."
