These "framings" are often considerably longer than the narratives themselves, and distract a great deal from the narratives. While I appreciate that academic writing marches to the beat of its own, peculiar drummer, the book nevertheless would have been both more readable and interesting had Ms. Tucker let the women who are actually the subject of the book do the hard work of enlightening us as to what their experience might mean.
The book is not thought-provoking: Ms. Tucker's gone to the trouble of doing the thinking for you.
