I was wondering why my comment didn't show up in the NYT website.

Apparently, we cultured womenfolk are only supposed to like sensitive, thought-provoking novels about dead children, spouses, serial killers, and adultery that we can talk about at our "book clubs." I'm not sure why, but the whole book club paragraph really got to me. Much has been written about women's writing, and writing for women, (and much more will be), but I have to say, I never thought of your novels as slanted towards one gender or the other. They're about characters, history, and conflict.

Although, when the Times reviewer said they were about climate change, I did start laughing. That helped temper the outrage.
