The Regulars by Georgia Clark
August 15, 2016
One of the many criticisms against chick lit is that it’s sexist. Yes, critics argue, the protagonists are female, but they are women singularly focused on getting a man and a good deal on shoes. And sometimes, unfortunately, these critics are right. So when a book comes out with a pink cover sporting lipstick prints, it’s easy to dismiss it as just another novel featuring women obsessed with men. But when it comes to YA author Georgia Clark’s first adult novel, The Regulars, that dismissal would be a mistake. More than one reviewer has called it a “feminist fairy tale,” but it’s deeper than that. After all, fairy tales end with “happily ever after” – the girl marrying her prince. The women in The Regulars have dreams much bigger than that.
