Female Writers

I'm still plugging through The Art of Fielding. I have about 25% more to go. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, The Huffington Post ran this article this morning about gender bias in the New York Times book reviews. Jennifer Weiner, one of my favorite authors, was featured heavily in the article. I don't always read the Times book reviews, but I found it interesting that Weiner pointed out that Jonathan Franzen's book Freedom was given a glowing review when it came out and many women who write similar books about families are dismissed as "chick lit" authors. Do you agree with Weiner?
