By David J. Loftus on April 7, 2000
Format: Hardcover
I award this book 5 stars because it is a great, thought-provoking read, it is out of print and shouldn't be, and more of this woman's books need to be translated because I am simply not going to learn Danish just so I can read them!
_Deliver Us From Love_ was the first book published by Suzanne Broegger (that's the Anglicization of Brogger with the slash through the "o"), a Danish journalist and feminist. I know she has published others in her native language -- at least one a detective novel. A Danish AFS exchange student told me the author was regarded by Danes-on-the-street as a racy eccentric; the only other place I've heard of her was in Brenda Venus's weird book about her affair of the mind with aged Henry Miller, in which Brogger is shown paying a respectful visit to the old codger.
I assume the chapters of this book were originally magazine and newspaper pieces. Most of them construct elegant, logical, even erudite arguments that lead to outrageous conclusions; to wit, that monogamy, the family, and children should be abolished; and that males should be barred from higher education, at least for a while. All this is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, of course, but Brogger raises interesting points along the way.
There is also a hair-raising discussion of rape, and an elegiac description of a visit to the public baths in pre-revolutionary Iran (shades of Anais Nin!).
This book and I go back a ways. I first stumbled on it around 1978 in the bowels of Harvard's Pusey library. (The women's issues, love and sex collections were held underground -- ponder THAT for symbolism.

The author swings both ways and wants it that way.The first couple of chapters are "refreshing" and enlighting but soon her way of life becomes sex-laden and onerous and sometimes downright dangerous. She seems to have been a torch-carrier in her time, today it all seems far, far away.
