Editorial Reviews

Review

“In this series of personal but unsentimental essays, Solnit gives succinct shorthand to a familiar female experience that before had gone unarticulated, perhaps even unrecognized.” 

The New York Times

 

“Essential feminist reading.”

The New Republic

 

"This slim book hums with power and wit.”

Boston Globe


 

“Solnit tackles big themes of gender and power in these accessible essays. Honest and full of wit, this is an integral read that furthers the conversation on feminism and contemporary society.”

San Francisco Chronicle


“The antidote to mansplaining.”

The Stranger


 

“Essential.”

Marketplace


“Feminist, frequently funny, unflinchingly honest and often scathing in its conclusions.”

Salon
