Book Lust: Chick Lit and Post Feminism

I am really loving Google Alert right now because it tips me off to so many awesome things!

I woke up this morning to an alert about Stephanie Harzewski’s forthcoming book, Chick Lit and Postfeminism.

According to the publishers website:

Chick Lit and Postfeminism is the first sustained historicization of this major pop-cultural phenomenon, and Harzewski successfully demonstrates how chick lit and the critical study of it yield social observations on upheavals in Anglo-American marriage and education patterns, heterosexual rituals, feminism, and postmodern values.”

I will definitely be ordering this book for it’s release later this month!  Currently it can be found for sale at the University of Virgina Press and Amazon.ca or Amazon.com.

Stephanie Harzewski, Ph.D., specializes in contemporary Anglophone fiction and women’s narrative prose. She is considered an expert on the chick lit genre and has been interviewed on the topic for publications like Poets and Writers and The Chicago Tribune (source).
