The follow-up volume to Mazza and DeShell's hugely popular Chick-Lit: Postfeminist Fiction Chick-Lit 2: No Chick Vics features new work by Rikki Ducornet, Eurydice, Elizabeth Graver, Ursule Molinaro, and fourteen other witty and deadly serious writers. Chick-Lit 2 discovers new and alternative voices in women's fiction whose stories do not involve trauma that comes from the outside. As Mazza writes in her introduction, "Sexual assaults and harassments and injurious poor body images do exist and have waged a war on women (the American Medical Association says so). But for this book, I was interested in seeing what action(s) women characters can incite on their own, whether bad or good, hopeful or dead-end, progressive or destructive."
