About the Book

The follow-up volume to Mazza and DeShell's hugely popular Chick-Lit: Postfeminist Fiction

Chick-Lit 2: No Chick Vics features new work by Rikki Ducornet, Eurydice, Elizabeth Graver, Ursule Molinaro, and fourteen other witty and deadly serious writers.

Chick-Lit 2 discovers new and alternative voices in women's fiction whose stories do not involve trauma that comes from the outside. As Mazza writes in her introduction, "Sexual assaults and harassments and injurious poor body images do exist and have waged a war on women (the American Medical Association says so). But for this book, I was interested in seeing what action(s) women characters can incite on their own, whether bad or good, hopeful or dead-end, progressive or destructive."

About the Author: Cris Mazza is the author of a dozen novels and collections of fiction. Her most recent books are the novels Disability and Homeland, and a memoir titled Indigenous / Growing Up Californian. Among her other notable titles are Dog People, Your Name Here: ___, plus the critically acclaimed Is It Sexual Harassment Yet? She was also co-editor of Chick-Lit: Postfeminist Fiction, and Chick-Lit 2 (No Chick Vics), anthologies of women's fiction, and was a recipient of an NEA fellowship. Mazza's first novel, How to Leave a Country, while still in manuscript won the PEN / Nelson Algren Award for book-length fiction. The judges included Studs Terkel and Grace Paley. Since then, Mazza's fiction has been reviewed numerous times in The New York Times Book Review, The Wall Street Journal, MS Magazine, Chicago Tribune Books, The Los Angeles Times Book Review, The Voice Literary Supplement, The San Francisco Review of Books, Time Out: London, and many other book review publications. In spring 1996, Mazza was the cover feature in Poets & Writers Magazine, and in December 2004 Poets & Writers published her essay "Chick-Lit and the Perversion of a Genre." The October 2005 Contemporary Literary Criticism as well as Routledge Press's Chick Lit: The New Woman's Fiction (October 2005) feature Mazza's essay on Chick-Lit. A native of Southern California, Cris Mazza grew into early adulthood in San Diego County. She now lives 50 miles west of Chicago and is a professor in the Program for Writers at the University of Illinois at Chicago

Jeffrey DeShell, novelist, professor, and literary critic, is the author of six novels: Expectation, S & M, Arthouse, The Trouble With Being Born, In Heaven Everything is Fine (FC2), and Peter: An (A)Historical Romance (Starcherone), as well as a critical book, The Peculiarity of Literature: An Allegorical Approach to Poe's Fiction. He has co-edited two collections of fiction by American women, Chick-Lit I: Postfeminist Fiction and Chick-Lit II: No Chick Vics (FC2), and was a Fulbright Teaching Fellow in Budapest, Hungary, 1999-2000. Currently, DeShell is a Professor of English, where he has served as the Director of the Creative Writing Program at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
