Heartbreakers by Josephine Hendin Heartbreakers, Paperback (January 2004)

From Medea to Goneril to Sharon Stone's ice-pick murderer to Susan Smith, the image of the violent woman has fascinated readers and audiences. Josephine Hendin looks at the figure of the violent woman and argues that a violent woman is a grenade pitched towards both conservative and liberal views of women.
