    SELF-DETERMINATION

    I found this memoir to be vibrant, thoughtful, and politically astute. Rothenberg writes of her growing up female in the 1950's, intelligent, and filled to the brim with the potential to do anything she wished in the world. That is, until she came face to face with a world that was closed to her, except for the options of marriage, and motherhood. She, also writes of her experiences of being born white skinned, and into a wealthy family, and how these facts afforded her respect, status, and opportunities that were not open to the rest of the world. The memoir is filled with many poignant passages that brought more than one tear to my eyes. The book is written with a thoughtful honesty that i found very refreshing. For me, the importance of this one woman saga lies not only in the reader being able to revisit this painful world of the 1950's, where a persons's sex, race, and class determined ones life, but lies in the reality of the present, as a reminder that in many crucial ways, they still do! I recommend this book to all those who strive for self-determination. Donna Parisi
