A Review of "Women Who Did",
By A Customer
This review is from: Women Who Did: Stories by Men and Women, 1890-1914 (Paperback)
"Women Who Did" was a revelation. Amazingly enough the part I enjoyed most was the introduction. Richardson's background is highly informative but at no time do you feel you've been forced into reading an introduction which is irrelevant to the text. The stories themselves are a delightful mix combining humour with a very emphatic message. At the end of every story i was expecting the 'happy ever after' ending that you might find in 'Chick Lit' but it never came. There is a definite feel of feminism about the text but this is diminshed by the presence of male authors. A book to read from cover to cover or dip into when you want a story of no more than ten pages.
