I've just been listening to the Guardian Book Club podcast interview and Q&A with David Mitchell (the Cloud Atlas guy, not the comic actor). He had some very interesting things to say, particularly about how economics can drive aesthetic decisions. He cited the influence of serial journals on the form of the Victorian novel, and the DVD boxset market on HBO drama series, when discussing why he cut Cloud Atlas back to 6 narrative strands from an original 9. Number of pages is apparently a major factor in whether a novel is lately to be translated or not.
