Author, Jenny ‘From The Block’ Crusie Tells It Like It Is...
Her rant was basically about the hoo ha caused by the alleged rape scene in Courting The Courtesan by Anna Campbell.
”There’s a huge hoo-ra (not Hoo Ha) going on right now about rape in romance, spurred by a book whose title I will not mention because I’ve never read it and neither, I think, have a lot of the people who are outraged by it.”
She’s probably right, the people complaining are probably the people who haven’t read the book. Have you noticed that that seems to happen a lot?
This was my favourite bit:
“And while we’re on this, any romance novel that makes God more important that the romance story is not a romance, it’s an inspirational novel with a romance subplot, and I don’t like them, either.”
God, I love her. Anyway, I’ve got nothing else to say on the matter, and had it not been for her eloquent rant, I would have totally ignored the subject, so go read for yourselves, if you haven’t already.
