From the Publisher
"Vnuk (adult services, Glen Ellyn Public Library, Illinois) introduces readers and their advisors about what to read to a broad sampling of books available in subgenres of women's fiction. Following an introduction defining women's fiction in historical context, she lists succinctly-annotated books by categories including working women, dating, and 'mommy lit.' Especially engaging is the inclusion of less conventionally themed books: e.g., 'never hit ‘reply all,' ' stories told through emails and other communiques. The guide's reading lists can be used to create library print materials and on library web sites."
