Editorial Reviews

Review

"A terrific labyrinthine look at the soap-fan culture. Harrington and Bielby cover it all—from the clubs to the crackpots, from today's hip n' sassy internet to the bubble-headed fanzines of yore—and the result is as juicy and compelling as the soaps themselves."
Michael Logan, TV Guide



"A rare combination of scholarship and engrossing readability, Soap Fans offers a fascinating and mostly positive insight into the lives of the misunderstood and often maligned soap opera devotee."
Mimi Torchin, Editor-in-Chief, Soap Opera Weekly

From the Publisher

A dispute of the simplistic illusion of soap fans as bored housewives or losers --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
