About Women

(2015)
Conversations Between a Writer and a Painter
A non fiction book by

 
 
A provocative and wide-ranging conversation between two distinctive women - one American and one French - on the dilemmas, rewards, and demands of womanhood.

Lisa Alther and Francoise Gilot have been friends for more than twenty-five years. Although from different backgrounds (Gilot from cosmopolitan Paris, Alther from small-town Tennessee) and different generations, they found they have a great deal in common as women who managed to support themselves with careers in the arts while simultaneously balancing the obligations of work and parenthood.

About Women
is their extended conversation in which they talk about everything important to them: their childhoods, the impact of war on their lives and their work, and their views on love, style, self-invention, feminism, and child rearing. They also discuss the creative impulse and the importance of art as they ponder what it means to be a woman.
