Shoes: Yeah, but what do you have?
Me: "Year of the Flood" by Margaret Atwood.
Shoes: That sounds like a chick book.
Me: It's dystopian. I don't think of dystopian novels as chick lit.
Shoes: It's a dystopian chick novel.
Me: The end of the world is a literature that appeals to the feminine?
Shoes: In the, "Oh my god, there's no more "O Network" or "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and the world doesn't have anymore yogurt covered raisins" type of dystopia.
Shoes: Ok. Give me the book.
