To Buy: Men, Women, and Chainsaws

After I posted a link to that article from Wired that quoted Carol Clover, my friend Joe (who is infinitely better read than I) recommended that I check out Clover’s book, Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film. I didn’t realize that the writer of the Wired article was referencing an entire book until Joe pointed it out to me, but now that I know, I’m itching to read it.

Like I said in the other post, I’m fascinated by gender issues, but as I write a lot of horror, I’m also curious to see how Clover’s theories apply to horror literature, if they do at all.
