I had never read any of Andrea Dworkin's work and didn't really know that much about her, apart from some negative name calling. This collection of short articles written by her and put together after her death blew me away. It's a type of memoir, articles about her childhood, school, her likes and dislikes, music she liked, plus many other issues that really mattered to her and figured in her books. She had such a clear brilliant mind, was uncompromising and stood up for what was important to her and had 'attitude' from an early age. I love this book, it's something to dip in and out of and to treasure.

this book is important.

Andrea has been misquoted and misunderstood for decades; most people see her as the stereotypical militant feminist (hairy, dungeries etc.), the woman (who was misrepresented as) saying that "all sex is rape"...

she peices together her life and her beliefs with beauty, wit, eloquence, and emotion... and it is possible to see beyond the ferocity of her speeches, to how she arrived at the conclusions she did.

this book is the missing peices of the jigsaw, which allows the reader to experience and understand for themselves how Dworkin arrived at the conclusions she did.

and also allows us to see, how right she is in her arguments.

we are not living post-feminism; infact, we haven't even come close to equality yet.

if you haven't already, read Ariel Levy's "female chauvanist pigs" first... its a brilliant introduction to modern feminism.

A very intriguing, bite-sized read (each chapter is about 2-5 pages long) which adds a more human face to the caricature of Andrea Dworkin's public persona. Moving, engaging and, in parts, very funny.

Some excellent parts, though some of her life still remains unclear, but protects her privacy. Even the title is straight to the heart, and the ending in my view brilliant.
