"A fascinating biography, Carolyn G. Heilbrun: Feminist in a Tenured Position now includes a new epilogue that probes the painful mystery of Heilbrun's 2003 suicide. In her moving final chapter, Kress, whose sense of personal loss is palpable through these pages, balances a life story of extraordinary accomplishment with the troubling ending Heilbrun chose to give it. [This book] is a deeply satisfying account of a woman writer whose pioneering words and example inspired many women to change their lives.
