“I was a little surprised that people were so shocked she would undertake that transaction. She’s done other things — she’s slept with other people before, she’s a sexually confident person, she knows what she’s doing, and this was an opportunity for her to set herself up for the rest of her life. She’s probably undertaken transactions like that for less. I don’t think it was necessarily Roger’s place; if she’s negotiated terms to her satisfaction, then good for her. I think they understand each other, they probably love each other, but it doesn’t mean they have to be together. And from a dramatic standpoint, it might be satisfying for a minute but I don’t think in the long-term — then what do you do? Where do they go? I don’t know. I’m not the one telling the story.”

Is it true that the real love story on “Mad Men” is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I’d like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. “The goal was to tell a story about  two men who once preserved concepts of manhood and masculinity but then found relief and happiness in each other, becoming a threat to the very same patriarchal system on which their power and privilege was based,” writes Elisa on her blog. “Queer Men: Don Loves Roger is a story about Don subverting rather than selling traditional masculinity.” [Pop Culture Pirate]

Win This! A Copy Of Roger Sterling’s Book

We heard bits and pieces of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr. on the last season of “Mad Men.” We didn’t think we’d be able to read Roger’s book, especially since he couldn’t get any publishers to bite. But he’s quite the character and is known for his quips and quick-wit barbs, so we think Sterling’s Gold would provide insight into the ad world and business, in general, as well as a look into upper middle-class life in New York during the 1950s and 1960s. [$10.99, Amazon.com]

WIN THIS! We’re giving away two copies of Sterling’s Gold: Wit and Wisdom of an Ad Man by Roger Sterling, Jr., but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us which is your favorite quip from Roger and why. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners Wednesday, Nov. 24. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
