Genre of fiction dealing primarily with the romantic and social lives of high-powered career women, usually set in New York City. Originated with Candace Bushnell's novel, "Sex and the City," which was soon followed by the Shopaholic series as well as numerous other imitations. The genre is more commonly and politely referred to as chick lit.
"Ever since she got 'Shopaholic' for her birthday, my mom's been obsessed with cliterature. It's so creepy."
