Bookburger notes that the Battle of Chick Lit is ON, with two nicely competing collections:
This Is Not Chick Lit and (wait for it)
Yowsa! Rumble time!
If I have to pick one, I'd have to line up behind Not - because it includes a story by Aimee Bender, who has graced the Paperhaus. Podcast is coming right up.
However, I'm not convinced that gender-based collections work for me. I see why women play on separate basketball teams than men, but when it comes to writing, I'm less concerned with the genitals of the writer than their work. (This will undoubetdly get me into trouble in gradschool.)
If you're curious, like I was, who lines up on the NotChick and Chick teams, the author list is after the jump.
THIS IS NOT CHICK LIT
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Jennifer S. Davis
THIS IS CHICK LIT
Andrea Schicke Hirsch
Harley Jane Kozak
