Okay I love the "men of Austen"- I just visited today and saw that.... thanks for the great link.
That Susan Falludi article is great!
Here from your comments on Rachel's blog (I tend to enjoy reading her even though we disagree on most positions too.) I'm not normally a fan of Susan Faludi, but that's an interesting article. I hope she's right, though then there's also her point that any stereotype is at most a second-best way to understand a person.
