Summary
Challenges popular (and often demeaning) myths about why romantic fiction, one of publishing's most lucrative categories, captivates millions of women readers. In a new introduction, author Radway places the book within the context of current scholarship and offers both an explanation and critique of the study's limitations.--From publisher description
