The genre of fiction known as chick-lit has been a lightning rod for debate in the world of literature, raising questions such as: Is chick-lit really literature or just harmless fluff? Is this really an accurate portrayal of the lives of modern women? Eighteen renowned authors—including Jennifer Coburn, Raelynn Hillhouse, Harley Jane Kozak, Cara Lockwood and Rachel Pine—weigh in with the best of chick-lit—proving that this genre deserves as much, or more, respect as any other. In addition to their story, each author elaborates on her feelings about the chick-lit label, and recommends literary fiction writers that have inspired them.
