I think everyone is fighting about the wrong damn thing.
I want to say something about the argument itself.
We’re living in an era when every other week another book reviewer gets cut from a newspaper’s roster. (The most recent was yesterday’s announcement that The Village Voice cut its reviewer loose.)
There is a bigger issue here than chick lit versus not chick lit.
The issue is a book culture versus not a book culture. And guess which one we are living in.
