Towards a definition of "YA"

Maybe we ought to do something like Wonko the Sane in "So Long and 
Thanks for All the Fish"... create a genre name for the rest of the 
books. Boring Old People books, for example.

"Excuse me, where are your BOP books?"

Just a thought.

As an aside:
Neil Gaiman's Coraline was the featured title on this month's 
Minnesota Public Radio "Talking Volumes" book-club-sort-of-thing. If 
you want to listen to the initial interview 1/20/04, or his live 
appearance at teh Fitzgerald Theater in St Paul last week, go to, and on the right side most 
of the way down is the "previous" section. As ever, he was witty and 
enjoyable to listen to. The Fitzgerald appearance includes a 
performance of a song he wrote the lyrics to by a group including his 
assistant the Fabulous Lorraine.
