Sharp, by Michelle Dean
“The expectations women have for each other, the way we all size each other up, have so many hopes for each other and so many moments, too, of disappointment that is the nature, apparently, of being a woman who thinks, and talks about thinking, in public.”
A delightful introduction to 10 female writers who never hesitated to share their opinions, even when unpopular. They all had uneasy relationships with Feminism as a movement, but you can’t deny their feminist thoughts and actions.
I’m grateful to Dean for her illuminating context and informative yet entertaining analysis of these women. I can’t wait to read their works.
