Passion and Prejudice: A Family Memoir, with a New Introduction

Overview

(Applause Books). "There are many accounts of the Bingham family saga, but no other by someone who was there. For the first time, a gifted writer born into a family of inherited wealth and power takes us with her behind the doors of that patriarchal hothouse. Passion and Prejudice is a major step toward feminist change and democracy. By her courage and example, Sallie Bingham already has inspired women in powerful families to begin to revolt. What is wrongly seen now as a private war will be come the opening skirmish in a high-level revolution."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The disillusioned heiress who triggered the breakup of the Bingham media empire describes her sheltered youth and eventual revolt against her family's old-fashioned attitudes. ``Writing with charm, poise and controlled fury, Bingham weaves a multigenerational saga and profiles a destructive patriarchal pattern,'' wrote PW , calling the autobiography ``mesmerizing . '' A new section describes how it feels ``to be attacked by your own family.'' Photos. (Nov.)

    Wonderfully written and has captued my complete attention

    I am just so happy I purchased this book on the first week of a three week vacation. I can't put it down. The story gives the reader a clear insight into the twisted lives of the story it tells. It is told as only a family member can. It is like living the book through the authors eyes. Riveting to say the least. 5 stars does not seem like enough!
