It has been a long time coming, so we hope you don't mind if we stay awhile. This week, yr grls embark on two part discussion of VENETIA by Lioness in her Field GEORGETTE HEYER. In an English country village (alleged) nonpareil Venetia meets an infamous rake and...well you know how this goes. Georgette Heyer basically wrote the song after all. A return to the canon means a return to the big questions in romance. We know Heyer is a bad person, but is Venetia? How extricable is perspective from heroine? Is a man who is good at reading romance aloud necessarily a feminist? How do we talk about the problematic hands that mold the objects we love? Put down that dentist office People Magazine and pick up your earbuds, this one is spicy. Whoa!mance is a part of Frolic Media
