“Loads of Women Running from Houses”

Flashbak has a gallery of Gothic romance covers with many women running from houses. “What exactly is the ‘women running from houses’ genre?  I’m glad you asked.  It refers to Gothic romance novels (generally paperback) which WITHOUT EXCEPTION pictured a woman running from a house on the cover.  It’s really a bit insane when you think about it: for several decades an entire genre (a quite popular one at that) featured the exact same cover with very little variation.  It’s mental.”
