I wanted to write this post not only to update you on this new editorial initiative, but to – briefly – examine some of the issues discussed in the article of "Diario dei pensieri persi”: was it really necessary to distinguish between books for men and books for women? Plus, a lot of women are passionate about crime stories, historical novels, etc ... so why keep offering the female readers a bunch of "chick-lit" books - that is, "light books"?
I know that genre DOES sell a lot; I also understand the need (at times) to entertain the public with something different from the 700-page-long works by Dostoevskji, but why is the female audience ALWAYS identified with the dreamy, naive one?
Trust me: give us some Ken Follett (i.e. his "Pillars of the Earth") or the tough topics by Chuck Palahniuk and I guarantee you we will be as happy! :D
Dateci, per esempio, Ken Follett con i suoi “Pilastri della terra” o le tematiche forti di Chuck Palahniuk e saremo felici anche noi! :D
