They say opposites attract, and what could be more opposite than a stuffy literary writer falling for a self-published romance writer?
Novelist Aaron Mite meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a renowned writer of important fiction. When he discovers she’s a self-published romance author, he’s already fallen in love with her.
Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the fiction-writing craft. He often quotes the essayist, Arthur Krystal who says literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” Ironically Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that he’s emotionally frozen. The vivacious Laurie, lover of flamingo-patterned attire and all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him.
In the tradition of The Rosie Project, Love Literary Style is a sparkling romantic comedy which pokes fun at the divide between low and high brow fiction.
Related subjects include: chick lit, women’s fiction, humor, humorous fiction, Southern humor, Southern living, friendship.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Cheeky and charming, Gillespie’s sweet, outlandish fable is as much a sendup of books, authors, and the publishing industry as it is a love letter to it all. Like the Pink Lady cocktails stodgy Aaron can’t help but adore, Love Literary Style is a frothy and irresistible concoction–that packs a surprising punch.
I liked the story, the tension between characters, the interaction between the father and Laurie. Laurie’s writing of stories in the genres of other authors was excellent. I actually laughed out loud. Perhaps the missteps between Laurie and Aaron went on a bit long but overall I enjoyed reading Love Literary Style far more than I expected and recommend it highly.
What a fun book. It’s an enjoyable romance wherein the main characters must grow in order to be able to appreciate each other and become fully capable in their own lives. On another level, it’s a delightfully snarky expose’ of the literary world, from wannabe authors to the very top level of publishing. You’ll laugh as you watch various characters preen and parade, hide behind the barriers that make them feel safe, or make their deals with the devil – or choose not to.
Karin Gillespie has written the thinking woman’s romantic comedy. Her newest title, Love Literary Style is smart, witty, and utterly charming. I adored this novel and couldn’t put it down.
Love Literary Style is an intelligently written novel packed with Southern wit. This is a story book clubs will devour. It’s warmly humorous, thought-provoking and shines with emotional depth.
