Synopses & Reviews
This rich anthology of contemporary writing by women throughout the French-speaking world is filled with literary treasures. Selected poems, short stories, essays, memoirs, and novels-some complete and others excerpted-explore issues of universal interest from women's perspectives: relationships, violence, and the influences of race, language, nationality, and sexuality on identity. "Unique and timely. I could not conceive of a better way to introduce undergraduate students to the diversity of French and Francophone literatures." -Fran?oise Lionnet, Northwestern University
