About this book


This book introduces the English-speaking reader to a stimulating range of contemporary French women's writing. The first section discusses the cultural conditions which led to an explosion of new writing by women in the 1970s examining the impact of the emergence of 'second-wave feminism' both on what women have written and how it has been received. This is followed by selections from the work of seven women writers, many translated here for the first time, together with introductions to their work.
