Comment

The bibliography's focused on romance fiction, so I've left out two essays from this volume. However, as I'm one of the co-editors, I feel they're worth reading, so I'm going to put details here.

Maureen Mulligan, "Cross-Cultural Romance and the Shadow of the Sheikh", which is about two travel memoirs. These non-fiction accounts do, however, seem to be drawing on captivity narratives of the kind one can find in E. M. Hull's The Sheik.

Ramón E. Soto-Crespo, "Archipelagoes of Romance: Decapitalized Otherness in Caribbean Trash Fiction", about narratives which don't have a central romance/end in violence, death and/or madness.
