Best selling authors Jennifer Weiner and Jodi Picoult speak out
about how the New York Times treats "chick lit": "when a man writes about family and feelings, it's literature with a capital L, but when a woman considers the same topics, it's romance, or a beach book - in short, it's something unworthy of a serious critic's attention."
Apparently, the Huffington Post interviewer didn't do all his research. The Times Magazine just did a feature story on Picoult
and her success last year.
