As the hit television show “Desperate Housewives” continues to seduce viewers with its outrageous humor, absorbing mysteries and deliciously naughty images of suburbia, this collection of essays examines the program’s appeal and why it has struck a chord with modern women. Critics, including bestselling chick-lit authors Beth Kendrick, Julie Kenner and Shanna Swendson, address key areas in essays such as “Why American Heroines are Best When They’re Bad,” “The Everywoman in an Apron,” “Edie Brit as Queer Critique” and “The Rebirth of Irony.” Not a typical fan guide, the essays deeply explore the show, answering the question on everyone’s mind: Just what is it about this show that has America so enthralled?
