9780810836044: North American Romance Writers

In this work, Kay Mussell and Johanna Tuñón collect essays by contemporary North American romance authors who have come to prominence, directly or indirectly, as a result of the huge change in the field of romance writing which started in the early 1980s. New publishing houses began to compete with Harlequin, and the North American romance novel came into its own as a genre. In their essays on their own work, each of the writers in this volume describes her own "take" on the romance novel today and how she has adapted the form to accommodate her own voice and concerns. Collectively, these writers have used the romance genre to address a broad range of social issues and problems. Presenting these essays together provides a window into the creativity and originality of some of the best writers in the field.

About the Author :

Kay Mussell (Ph.D. American Civilization) is the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Professor of American Studies and Literature at the American University in Washington, D.C.Johanna Tuñón is Head of Distance Library Services at the Einstein Library of Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

From Booklist :

Taking a highly selective and somewhat unusual approach, this volume profiles more than 30 contemporary writers who are meant to represent the shift since the early 1980s from stories based on British models to works published in the U.S. and Canada, with North American settings. The editors, a literature professor and a librarian, explain in their preface that they chose writers "who represented a variety of genres" and "whose novels led us to believe they would have something interesting to say about their own work." Although not limited to award winners, the book includes a number of writers who have been honored by Romance Writers of America or by other romance organizations and magazines. Among those who made the cut are established writers such as Jo Beverly, Sandra Kitt (the first black woman to publish with Harlequin), and Nora Roberts, and relative newcomers such as Jennifer Crusie and Lorraine Heath. For the most part, the writers' works have been published in paperback series, such as those from Harlequin and Silhouette.

Entries are arranged A^-Z and provide pseudonyms, a brief profile, and a list of works. Biographical details are kept to a minimum--no dates or places of birth. The information provided for each work includes publication date, publisher, and awards. In addition, each writer was asked to contribute an essay, and these, taken as a whole, offer some interesting perspectives on the writing process and on the evolution of the genre. Entries vary in length from four to ten pages, depending on the extent of the bibliography and the length of the essay. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography that includes scholarly studies, magazine and journal articles, dissertations, and lectures. The index helps to link pseudonyms with the proper entries.

It can be difficult to find information on some of these writers, since they are published mainly in paperback. Romance fans will enjoy the personal touch provided by the essays in this volume, and students will appreciate the bibliographical information. Recommended for public libraries, and for academic libraries supporting genre fiction studies.
