Riassunto: "Gender Bias in Mystery and Romance Novel Publishing": examines gender bias from the perspective of readers, writers and publishers, with a focus on the top two best-selling genres in modern fiction. It is a linguistic, literary stylistic, and structurally formalist analysis of the male and female ?sentences? in the genres that have the greatest gender divide: romances and mysteries. The analysis will search for the historical roots that solidified what many think of today as a ?natural? division. Virginia Woolf called it the fabricated ?feminine sentence,? and other linguists have also identified clear sex-preferential differences in Anglo-American, Swedish and French novels. Do female mystery writers adopt a masculine voice when they write mysteries? Are female-penned mysteries structurally or linguistically different from their male competitors?, and vice versa among male romance writers? The first part can be used as a textbook for gender stylistics, as it provides an in-depth review of prior research. The second part is an analysis of the results of a survey on readers? perception of gender in passages from literature. The last part is a linguistic and structural analysis of actual statistical differences between the novels in the two genres, considering the impact of the author?s gender. ?A must-read for a mystery author like me, but also for every man and woman interested in the way we interact because art mimics reality? Or is it just the opposite? :) :) ? ?Bob Van Laerhoven, winner of the Hercule Poirot Prize
