Traditionally, Activists Have Been Drawn Like Moths to the Great Light of Self-Immolation

So Many Books: “Here’s my problem. Instead of fighting for a bigger piece of the pie for all women writers–more bylines and review space at the literary publications, chick lit vs literary fiction sets up a dynamic pitting women writers against each other for the same small piece of pie. This is so old-school. Has everyone forgotten what we learned from the feminist movement? I’m not looking for chick lit and literary writers to band together and get all kum-ba-ya or anything, that’s plain dumb and naive. But it’s even dumber for the two genres to fight against each other especially after acknowledging there is a bigger issue involved.”
