Jennifer Weiner’s Quest for Literary Respect
Jennifer Weiner has two audiences. One consists of the devoted consumers of her books, which have sold more than four and a half million copies. The other audience is made up of writers, editors, and critics. Weiner’s readers seek out her latest books for the same satisfactions they have found in her earlier books, with their casual prose, happy resolutions, and lovable heroines. Through her blog and her Twitter account, Weiner has stoked a lively public discussion about the reception and consumption of fiction written by women.
