The Science of Herself

The Science of Herself

(2013)
A non fiction book by

 
Well known in the mainstream for her bestseller, "The Jane Austen Book Club," Karen Joy Fowler offers a short collection of perceptive, entertaining, thought-provoking, and often hilarious speculative stories with a progressive and feminist edge. An all-new story set in the days of Darwin, "The Science of Herself" is an astonishing hybrid of SF and historical fiction: the almost-true story of England's first female paleontologist and her struggles to bring modern science to the Victorian establishment. "The Further Adventures of the Invisible Man" is a hilarious faux-YA tale about bullying, revenge, baseball, and shoplifting. "The Motherhood Statement," a nonfiction analysis of the current state of gender equality in publishing and politics, shows off Fowler's radicalism and impatience with both Tea Party idiocy and liberal pieties. Also featured is an interview that showcases the author's mordant wit, deep erudition, and radical spirit.
