Samenvatting

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.
