I thought that this here Feministing post, Not Oprah's Book Club: Death by Chick Lit might offer a reprieve in the genre for those who are just as irritated by it as Medea is. 'Death by Chick Lit' is a novel by Lynn Harris that seems like it may have the same concerns as my fellow witch. It offers a satirical skewering of what we come to know as 'chick lit' and turns it on its head. Feministing's Courtney gives it a good review. Check it out.
I know I'm gonna add it to my bookshelf on Facebook.
