Sarah Waters


Paul - I love you, truly I do but I can't let that 'gay ghetto" phrase pass without comment. It's reductive, simplistic and biased. There is an audience looking specifically for gay/lesbian lit. Making sure that that audience is able to identify, locate and have access to gay and lesbian fiction is not ghettoization. By the time straight audiences start reading said authors there is generally a solid gay boy dyke fan base. Check out how many lesbians will be in the audience tonight for Sarah Waters. I would call it co-opting, not ghetto-izing...
