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
