The article considers the position of the literary festival in the 'anthropology' of contemporary literature, in particular the relationship between readers and authors as it emerges in the questions the readers ask. It focuses on the author's complaint that readers ask autobiographical questions and are most interested in the relationship between life and work, something that authors tend to deny systematically. Giving many examples, articles concludes by examining what aspect of reading experience leads the public to ask these questions, which are often far from stupid.
