Reasonable Creatures: Essays on Women and Feminism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She writes about sex, children's books, the media, breast implants, the mind of an antiabortionist. She invokes Moby Dick and Gilligan's Island, Lorena Bobbitt and Lysistrata ("the original woman's strike-for-peace-nik"). For more than a decade, in her wonderfully provocative, wittily astute, graceful and gutsy pieces in The Nation, The New Yorker and The New York Times, she has taken the strongest positions on the thorniest moral issues and the most controversial events, from date rape to surrogate motherhood, to violence against women, to the Anita Hill hearings, to fetal rights and mothers' "wrongs."

The best of her pieces are gathered here.
