Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A bountiful literary quilt of quotations and intimate glimpses of writers’ work lives.” Chronogram Magazine
“The terrain navigated by women writers has both gender-specific pitfalls and advantages…[in] different eras. Each writer is revealed as having approached her profession with a personal motivation, a characteristic attitude, and a desire to write that surpassed the majority of her peers…As enjoyable as it is informative.” ForeWord
“Wouldn’t it be great to have Willa Cather, Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, or Anais Nin all hanging out in your kitchen, offering you support and wisdom, food for thought to continue on? I can turn to any page and find inspiration, guidance, and wisdom from some of the most amazing writers of the last two centuries.” Alexandra Jamieson, actress and author of Radical Alignment
