Rob, surely every screenwriter on The Wire or Deadwood can't have the same 'social assumptions.'? What about co-authored novels -- James Patterson's 'social assumptions' or the guy who writes the novel from Patterson's spec?

********** I take it you're not suggesting that no books carry the author's social assumptions, right? Just that all of them don't. It's obvious to me that quite a few books are a reflection of the author's way of thinking. And I would also agree that it's entirely possible that Ayn Rand could have written a Marxist novel.
