Summary
"Upon its first publication, Loving with a Vengeance was a ground-breaking study of women readers and their relationship to mass-market romance fiction. Feminist scholar and cultural critic Tania Modleski here revisits her widely read book, bringing to this new edition a review of the issues that have, in the intervening years, shaped and reshaped questions of women's reading, including romance novels, soap operas, and "chick lit." With her understanding of the power both of the mass-produced object - film, television, or popular literature - and the complex workings of reading and reception, she offers a framework for thinking about one of popular culture's central issues." "This edition includes a new introduction, a new chapter, and changes throughout the existing text."--BOOK JACKET
