New short stories from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - Aimee Bender - Judy Budnitz - Jennifer S. Davis - Jennifer Egan - Carolyn Ferrell - Mary Gordon - Cristina Henri quez - Samantha Hunt - Binnie Kirshenbaum - Dika Lam - Caitlin Macy - Francine Prose - Holiday Reinhorn - Roxana Robinson - Curtis Sittenfeld - Lynne Tillman - Martha Witt " "Chick lit: A genre of fiction that often recycles the following plot: Girl in big city desperately searches for Mr. Right in between dieting and shopping for shoes. Girl gets dumped (sometimes repeatedly). Girl finds Prince Charming. "This Is Not Chick Lit "is a celebration of America's most dynamic literary voices, as well as a much needed reminder that, for every stock protagonist with a designer handbag and three boyfriends, there is a woman writer pushing the envelope of literary fiction with imagination, humor, and depth. The original short stories in this collection touch on some of the same themes as chick lit- the search for love and identity- but they do so with extraordinary power, creativity, and range; they are also political, provocative, and, at turns, utterly surprising. Featuring marquee names as well as burgeoning talents, "This Is Not Chick Lit "will nourish your heart, and your mind. " "This Is Not Chick Lit" is important not only for its content, but for its title. I'll know we're getting somewhere when equally talented male writers feel they have to separate themselves from the endless stream of fiction glorifying war, hunting and sports by naming an anthology This Is Not aGuy Thing." - Gloria Steinem " These voices, diverse and almost eerily resonant, offer us a refreshing breath of womanhood-untamed, ungroomed, and unglossed." - ELLE
