Tags: A Life in Motion, reviews

I just received news of two new reviews coming in. A man--at least I think it's a man--who has a regular blog, just wrote a long and sensible review of A Life in Motion. It's amazing to me, and I've written to him asking why he did it. With reviews, one must depend on the kindness of strangers.

Here's a bit of it: "A Life in Motion is almost literally what [Howe]'s led since the late 1960s, traveling around the country and the world to do research, to network, to coordinate the research of others, to raise money for the Press—she's a regular feminist dervish . . . . Those who want to know where feminism came from and where it's going ought to read it."

Jewish Book World is also featuring my book in their September issue. Here's a preview of their fabulous review: "As a detailed history of some inner-circles of modern American feminism, this memoir is of value to historians; for women of any age, who know ‘the personal is political,’it’s a must read." Stay tuned for more reviews to come.
