Sarah Wendell, Explorer of Interesting Things Deemed Lowbrow and Unimportant
Linda Holmes profiles Smart Bitches, Trashy Books‘ Sarah Wendell and her new book, Everything I Know About Love I Learned From Romance Novels. Holmes writes that Wendell “remains one of the best explorers I know of the interesting aspects of things typically deemed lowbrow and unimportant, and this book is a great example.” There’s also a fantastic discussion of how readers learn more about themselves from what genre elements, conventions and heroes they find appealing. Something a fan of any genre can think about.
