Estonian authors have no time to write

Writing in the daily Eesti Päevaleht, author Jan Kaus bemoans the frequent and unprofessional public attacks on Estonian literature: "I hope that it is possible to conduct a peaceful debate about the role of Estonian literature in society. I don't by any means believe that everyone should consider literature absolutely essential. But I simply can't accept statements like 'Estonian literature is bad so I don't bother reading it'. How can one form an opinion about something one isn't familiar with? Moreover, we should reflect on whether one of the reasons there are so few Estonian novels is because authors have no opportunity to concentrate on writing: the Estonian market is so tiny that even a bestseller doesn't automatically provide economic security."
