Goodreads' Elizabeth K. Chandler has a post today about the genre sensation that's sweeping the Internet nation: New Adult, which generally features characters who are "mostly college-age, who seem to have lots of sex and rarely see their parents."

Chandler looks at the debate around the genesis of this type of fiction. Did it always exist, just without a label? Is it a byproduct of a sluggish job market for college grads who find themselves with time on their hands? Or is this simply a logical extension of self-publishing's democratization of the market?
