Product description


Wayne Koestenbaum author of "The Queen's Throat" and "Jackie Under My Skin"Elaine Showalter's phrases turn heads, inspire revolution: she is a brilliant critic, and this remarkable new book significantly extends the range of her sympathies and enthusiasms. Every reader will want to emulate the feminist mavericks whose lives she expertly sketches, for "Inventing Herself" gives a taste of these women's accomplishments but also of their amusements and transports. Showalter demonstrates a Wildean refusal to overplay earnestness; she pays keen attention to human foible, to sexual ambiguity, and to the often compromised relation between work and love. Her analyses are never predictable, always astringent. I frequently laugh aloud at the sly precision of her observations.
