Writing a woman's life
"Astute and provocative....Blends the sophistication of recent feminist theory with highly textured details fro the lives of independent and ambitious women."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Drawing on the experience of celebrated women, from George Sand and Virginia Woolf to Dorothy Sayers and Adrienne Rich, Heilbrun examines the struggle these writers undertook when their drives made it impossible for them to follow the traditional "male" script for a woman's life. Refreshing and insightful, this is an homage to brave women past and present, and an invitation to all women to write their own scripts, whatever they may be.

Review: Writing a Woman's Life (Ballantine Reader's Circle)User Review - Jennifer Rolfe - Goodreads
This book has changed the way I view biography and autobiography. How much is left out when writing it? How the writer's viewpoint is so interspersed in the interpretation of life. I hope objectivity is a thing of the past. Read full review
