TOO GRITTY?

My friend Eric Wilson shares some of the conflicts a novelist faces between art and commerce on his Amazon blog:
I'm working now on the second Aramis book, A Shred of Truth, but I find myself questioning my own scenes and dialogue. Will I be asked to "clean it up"? Will readers in ivory towers send e-mails about the "gritty stuff" in my work?

Eric's latest novel, The Best of Evil (WaterBrook), comes out in September.
