22 Minutes of Unconditional Love (2020)
Daphne Merkin
"22 Minutes of Unconditional Love is a very strong book, full of echoes and recognitions and interest on many levels--personal, literary, sociological, philosophical. Its take on the freedoms and constraints of feminism is much needed. Daphne Merkin's prose has some of the shocking exhilaration of early Edna O'Brien."
thumb
A Girl's Story (2020)
Annie Ernaux
"Ernaux has inherited de Beauvoir's role of chronicler to a generation."
thumb
Unexpected Lessons in Love (2013)
Bernardine Bishop
"Frank, courageous and entertaining. I felt better for reading it."
