Robert Irwin is the author of several novels, as well as books on Islamic art and literature. His contribution to this anthology of prose and verse is an essay, ‘Your Novel Needs Indexing’. It starts off in tongue-in-cheek style, and one is justified in treating with scepticism Irwin’s claim that ‘I am always being asked by would-be novelists, “Should I index my novel and, if so, how do I set about it?”’, and indeed that ‘This sort of question comes ahead even of, “Does the novel I amplanning to write have to be typed on one side of the paper only?” and “Do I need an agent?”’

Opponents of the indexing procedure . . . maintain that the index, by providing a kind of school crib to the novel’s themes, tends to foster reductionist readings of that novel.
