So Long, Farewell

Like a guest who leaves nearly before he arrives, Lad Lit has left the building. For those who haven’t been paying attention, Lad Lit is (was?) like Chicklit, only for and by men. But we think maybe women were part of the target audience, too, and they weren’t too thrilled with stories of men acting exactly like we’ve long suspected real men do. By reading between the lines of the article, we also get the impression that men can’t read. Or something like that. This discovery doesn’t explain why we trip over piles of male reading material every day. It’s like socks on the floor. Nevertheless, we have done some deep thinking on this subject, and, though it pains us to suggest it, perhaps it wasn’t so much the lit as it was the lads…?
