"Here is an excellent study of feminist novels of the 1970s that seems to this veteran to get it right. How refreshing to see this group of novels treated as seriously as any other. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Alix Kates Shulman
...[A]n excellent study of feminist novels of the 1970s that seems...to get it right....[She] places them firmly in the lively political culture of the time, exposing not only their liberatory effect on a wide readership but also the way some of them achieved "a wider circulation of ideas from the Women's Liberation Movement by moderating those ideas, by softening their political edges."

From the Publisher
"Here is an excellent study of feminist novels of the 1970s that seems to this veteran to get it right. How refreshing to see this group of novels treated as seriously as any other."—Alix Kates Shulman, Women's Review of Books "Fascinating chapters on the relationship between fiction, the theoretical and political debates among women's and feminist groups, and the questions of sexuality . . . and race . . . merit broad readership and prove more culturally illuminating for their emphasis on popular fiction."—In Brief
