Chick Lit: The New Woman's Fiction
1stPublisher: RoutledgeFormat: Paperback
“Chick Lit” is the first book-length scholarly exploration of what has become a major pop culture movement, from “Bridget Jones's Diary” to “Four Blondes”. This edited collection of original and intriguing essays examines the chick lit phenomenon from a variety of angles, including race, sexuality, class and gender to account for its popularity and the intense reactions - both positive and negative - it has provoked. Despite the extensive popular discussion of 'chick lit,' there remains relatively little scholarly material that explores the phenomenon. Filling a gap in the field, this book is essential reading for those studying or interested in literature, women's studies, cultural studies, and film and media studies. Given the popularity of chick lit in both the US and the UK, it will also appeal to a broad international readership.
