About this product
- DescriptionLaura Vivanco's study challenges the idea that Harlequin Mills & Boon romances are merely mass-produced commodities, churned out in accordance with a strict and unchanging formula. She argues that many are well-written, skilfully crafted works, and that some are small masterpieces. For Love and Money demonstrates the variety that exists beneath the covers of Harlequin Mills & Boon romances. They range from pararmal romances to vels resembling chick lit, and many have addressed serious issues, including the plight of post-Second World War refugees, threats to marine mammals, and HIV/AIDS. The genre draws inspiration from Shakespearean comedies and Austen's vels, as well as from other forms of popular culture. Laura Vivanco's For Love and Money is an impressive study of the popular fiction of Harlequin Mills and Boon that is a must read for any student of popular fiction and for those who write and love the genre - Liz Fielding, author of over 50 Harlequin Mills & Boon romances.
- Author BiographyLaura Vivanco is an independent scholar of romance fiction, including both modern popular romance and mediaeval Hispanic literature and is the author of Death in Fifteenth-Century Castile: Ideologies of the Elites and of many essays on Spanish romance.
