RESA L. DUDOVITZ - The Myth of Superwoman Women's Bestsellers in France and the United States

Title: The Myth of Superwoman Women's Bestsellers in France and the United States
Description: Routledge, 1990 (Eerste druk), 208 blz., porto 3,95 euro NL, ISBN 9780415031875, Paperback in goede staat. Weervlekjes op snedes. Engelstalig.,Reviled by the critics but loved by the readers, the bestseller has until recently provoked little serious critcal interest. In The Myth of Superwoman Resa Dudovitze looks at this international phenomenon, particularly at the origins of the bestseller system in the United States and France. Her cross-cultural study including interviews with publishers, literatry agents, and bestselling authors, gives a lively picture of the contrasting ways in which the bestseller is produced, marketed, and received in two countries. It pays special attention to the international bestsellers of the 1980s to writers like Judith Krantz, Colleen McCullough, and Barbara Taylor Bradford ... Dudovitz shows how women's best selling fiction has, over the last two hundred years, kept pace with the social evolution of contemporary women, culminating in the myth of superwoman in women's bestsellers of the 1980s."--Back cover..
