An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest
Edited by Jennifer Crusie and Leah Wilson
For seven seasons the appeal of the Gilmore Girls has transcended genders and generations with its signature banter and irresistibly quirky characters. Now Coffee at Luke’s raises a mug to the citizens of Stars Hollow, animatedly debating and discussing the show in true Gilmore fashion.
The quirky world of Stars Hollow and the incredible relationship of the Gilmore Girls—mother Lorelai and daughter Rory are best friends—continues to engage viewers after seven seasons, with its lightning-fast dialogue, dry wit, and unusual take on family relations. In this satirical yet sensitive collection of essays, leading writers weigh in on how this unique show has successfully broken the teenage-sitcom mold and gained viewers of all ages. Addressing questions such as What are the risks of having your mother be your best friend? How is Gilmore Girls anti-family, at least in the traditional sense? and What’s a male viewer to do when he finds both mother and daughter attractive? this anthology also looks at how the characters are shaped by the pop culture they consume and how prevalent a feeling of class consciousness is within the series.
