I thought for a moment we might reach a 39% parity rate this week (or two weeks, it's a double issue) but China Miéville turned out to be a male. I will say there was a surprisingly high number of women represented in their science fiction section. But the parity score is exactly the same as last week's.
Henceforth I will ignore the reviews of Anthony Lane, who seems to have a problem with the film "Hysteria" being a romantic comedy instead of a treatise on the development of the vibrator. He also claims it has few laughs, which I can attest is wrong. But then Anthony Lane thinks hideous bromance swill like Knocked Up is swell. Or as he says "even if you tire of Apatow’s vomit jokes..." - I mean how could anybody ever tire of vomit jokes? What a concept! But even if you, inconceivably, tire of vomit jokes, well there is still so much comedy gold. After all, there are fart jokes too! This is what Lane considers a good romantic comedy. Idiot.
