I think it's wasn't over the top sentiment,2009-04-19 17:22:05 by peachacid
Though. I normally HATE overly sentimental books, so the fact that I like it is the only judgement I'm using right now...haven't read it in years.
I wish there was a place for slightly sentimental fiction that is well written, with real characters. It's as though sentiment is so female that it's not allowed in "good" books, and that women who are appealing have to be more masculine in their behavior...and that the female characters who are actually just normal women are relegated to chick lit.
I want something in the middle, which is more similar to the stuff that Edith Wharton was writing, I guess.

Ghettoizing2002-12-25 17:41:07 by PIZman
*It doesn't help that booksellers tend to ghettoize "gay literature" just like "women's literature," "black literature," etc. instead of lumping it all together as "literature that addresses the human condition."
DEFINITELY. But, however unfortunate, it's just going to keep happening, so in the meantime, it's upon us to dig through ALL sections of Literature and find the good stuff.
*Îf there is indeed a trend toward a conservative nuclear-family view, I wonder if it isn't a relic of U.S. publishers seeking out "Oprah"-type feel-good fiction that they feel will be best sellers, rather than publishing anywhere near the cutting edge
Mother (cont'd)2009-01-06 14:14:38 by sly50
About 20 years ago I met my son, finally. He is a very angry man who was convinced that I had abandoned him, and had the typical adoptee fantasies of me as either a princess, rock star, or prostitute. I am none of those things, obviously. I am just a woman, a mother, and have 5 other children that I either gave birth to or got through marriage.
There is an excellent book by Ann Fessler about that period called "The Girls Who Went Away" which was one of the Amazon Top 10 best non fiction books of the year last year. it explains it all in detail, the violations of our civil and human rights, the coercion, the lies and deception, the abuse that the women endured while being shamed into surrendering their infants, all very carefully hidden behind the sealed adoption records
