"The novel is a wonderfully commodious creature"

The novel is a wonderfully commodious creature. One might wish they made trousers like it, for it can stretch or shrink to accommodate almost anything, from Ali Smith’s Spring (part story, part polemic) to Max Porter’s prose-poem/fable, Lanny... The story has everything a novelist could wish for in its themes of power, lust, love, faith and conscience [however] [t]he connection between David and Wyatt seems to me a bit precarious (Cook did the same with Achilles, linking him to Keats).
