I once read an article in Elle Magazine titled "I know what boys like."
I loved how she talks about the different books of "guy lit" and the differences in male authors vs. women writers.
..."I've had many great, gripping experiences reading male writers who, like JD Salinger, put men down on the page with a kind of real, raw, naked specificity that, whether in fiction or non-, makes them multidimensional and--excitingly---intimately available..."
I love that!
I've always had a fixation with Lolita-esque plot lines...and she spoke about a book called "The Corrections."
..."Seducing his boss's boss's boss's daughter...he artfully employs every inch of his red-and-blue mug---bashfully looking away from Denise to guilt her about her relative advantages in life, lowering his lids languorously when she starts to come around, and bowing his enormous head in stage solemnity when she finally undresses. The seduction makes my hair stand on end each time I read it."
She ends it by thanking so many men (writers) who "have opened my eyes to male inner lives."
Interesting concept really.
i may have to "curl up" next to Holden. ;)
