Just read in Salon, from Teddy Wayne:

"The archetypal book-club novel is written by a woman, its characters are female-centric, and it contains a love story, sensitive coming-of-age tale, or mother-daughter narrative, perhaps set against a historical backdrop."

And, oh, I think Hild is going to do well...

The rest of his argument--that male novelists are sadly disadvanted--is specious. But I like that quote, a lot :)
