Choice between the increasing number of published book titles is becoming increasingly difficult. Can the quality of the text itself oppose the effects of media exposure? While Virginia Woolf spoke about ‘one’s own room’ in a completely literal sense and understood it as a liberated territory intended for creative writing, and at the same time emphasised its symbolic dimension as a place of formed identity, the end of the millennium faced authors with new challenges. What art, after its conception, nowadays needs for its survival or existence is in fact a public room – an artist’s presence in the industrial environment of the mass media.
