James Reasoner quibbles:

Why can't this sort of novel be literature like any other kind of novel that's good enough to merit that distinction (which is pretty much subjective anyway)?

************ Well, it kinda depends on what your definition of literature is. I define literature as works that retain popularity beyond the time period they were written in. So according to what Jim Doherty has said about Spillane's work, at least some of it could quite possibly be literature.
