New PDF release: The Feminist Bestseller: From Sex and the Single Girlto Sex

By Imelda Whelehan

Imelda Whelehan offers an summary of renowned women's writing from the overdue Sixties to the current, taking a look at how key feminist texts comparable to The Women's Room, Kinflicks and Fear of Flying have stimulated well known modern fiction corresponding to Bridget Jones' Diary and Sex and the City. Whelehan reconsiders the hyperlinks among the politics of feminist proposal, motion and writing and inventive writing over the last 30 years and means that even so-called 'post feminist' writing owes a massive debt to feminism's moment wave.
