Becoming a Heroine: Reading about Women in Novels

by Rachel M. Brownstein
 
-A splendid book, a rare combination of critical brillance and personal warmth. Brownstein speaks for a generation, perhaps a tradition, of passionate women readers; she stands for literary values that need to be defended against the chilling abstractions of contemporary theory, and that remind us why we read and how we shape our lives by our books. -Elaine
