“Women date like men and men are more in touch with their emotions,” explains Brown. “But we embrace these differences as strengths and part of our uniqueness. The problem, though, is that men and women are drifting further and further apart as a result of not being subjected to gender roles. Now, it’s as if men are from Mars and women are from… some other galaxy!”
So are millennials manically confused or just misunderstood?
Like the movies, Friends with Benefits (Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake) and No Strings Attached (Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher), Brown’s Tenth Letter novel examines the dilemma of opposite-sex intimacy and is solid evidence that Generation Y is trying to figure out how, exactly, it can attain the life it wants despite the barrage of “issues” admittedly keeping them from a mutual goal: happiness.
“The way women are depicted in entertainment could not have been done 30 years ago if for no other reason than it wasn’t ‘ladylike,’” Brown says. “Today, there is no finite definition of ‘ladylike.’”
Tenth Letter is the ultimate literary depiction of the modern, urban millennial relationship between the male and female of today who attempt to navigate it to the proverbial, “Happily ever after.”[/one_half_last]
“Brown is a new voice in relationship drama… I absolutely recommend this one,”says Real Page Turners (book reviewer).
