Abstract:

In this work, Kay Mussell and Johanna Tunon collect essays by contemporary North American romance authors who have come to prominence, directly or indirectly, as a result of the shake-up of the field that started in the early 1980s. In essays on their own work, each of the writers describes her "take" on the romance novel today and how she has adapted the form to accommodate her own voice and concerns. Collectively, these writers have used the romance genre to address a broad range of social issues and problems. Presenting these essays together provides a window into the creativity and originality of some of the writers who have shaped romances since the dramatic changes of the early 1980s.
