To Write Like a Woman by Joanna Russ

Book Description

"To Write Like a Woman is a rare example of a feminist tackling science fictuion using postmodern theory, which makes for a much more sophisticated and nuanced appraisal than the usual fare." -Passion "Russ' essays are witty and insightful. An excellent book for any writer or reader." -Feminist Bookstore News "In her new book of essays...Russ continues to debunk and demand, edify and entertain...Appreciative of surface aesthetics, she continually delves deeper than most critics, yet in terms so simple and accessible that her essays read like lively, angry, humorous dialogues conducted face-to-face with the author. Russ is the antithesis of the distant critic in her ivory tower." -Paul Di Filippo, The Washington Post Book World "...20 years of the author's feisty reports from the front lines of literature." -The San Francisco Review of Books "This is a book of imaginative and provoking essays, but you should read it for the sheer fun of it." -The Women's Review of Books "Collects more than two decades of criticism by Joanna Russ, one of the most perceptive, forthright and eloquent feminist commentators around." -Feminist Bookstore News "...a super book...This is a book that, for once, really will appeal to readers of all kinds. " -Utopian Studies "If you enjoy science fiction, this is definitely a book that you'll want to talk about. I found myself sneaking a few pages at times when I really didn't have time to read." -Jan Catano, Atlantis Classic essays on science fiction and feminism by Nebula and Hugo award-winning Joanna Russ. Here she ranges from a consideration of the aesthetic of science fiction to a reading of the lesbian identity of Willa Cather. To Write Like a Woman includes essays on horror stories and the supernatural, feminist utopias, popular literature for women (the "modern gothic"), and the feminist education of graduate students in English.
