BookList

Grand in vision and scope, this anthology celebrates the rich and strange life-passages contemporary American women could well encounter. Encompassing girlhood to mature old age, and including representations of the profound joys and bittersweet heartaches that accompany the realms of love, marriage, children, and career, the works selected here are grouped in sequence to commemorate these seasons of women's experience. Snippets of memoirs, short stories, excerpts from novels, and essays are among the range of literary forms editor Norris looks to in order to create an emotional landscape greater than one based simply on the number of years one has lived. Nearly 50 superb writers, most of whom are quite well known, present the sort of defining encounters and struggles readers may ponder to view other women coming to terms with being female today.
