Meg Wolitzer’s Essay as Catalyst for Thought and Discussion…

Dear Readers,

How do you respond to novelist Meg Wolitzer’s thoughts in yesterday’s New York TIMES Book Review?  I’m interested in your experiences.  Do you approach novels differently depending on the gender of the author?  Do you have favorite novels in which the narrative voice is not the same gender as the author’s, a la Wally Lamb in SHE’S COME UNDONE?

–eager to hear what you have to say.

All Best,

Mary

    Hi Mary,
    I loved She’s Come Undone. Although I read it some years ago, I remember thinking, as I was reading, that it must have been a challenge for him to write from a young woman’s perspective. I suppose it helped, in his case, that he was, at one time, a high school teacher and probably had some interaction with teenagers. On the whole, I don’t think it matters whether the author is a man or a woman, if the story is compelling and well researched. I am REALLY looking forward to reading your book. I see that you will be at Chase on Saturday, from 3-5, signing copies. Will there be books there to purchase, or do I have to get it ahead of time?
