I Am Becoming the Woman I've Wanted
Papier-Mache Press, 1994 - Family & Relationships - 218 pages
I Am Becoming the Woman I?ve Wanted, the latest in the series of best-selling anthologies (When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple and If I Had My Life to Live Over I would Pick More Daisies), delves into the sometimes hidden and always powerful feelings that women have about their bodies. In the emotionally evocative style that characterizes Martz?s previous collections, this book explores coming of age, sexuality, child-birth, physical power, menopause, aging, and much more. This is more than just another book about body image. Using her talent for bringing together extraordinary stories, poems, and photographs about women?s lives, editor Sandra Martz explores the broader question of how the physical aspects of being female affect women?s experiences. This best-selling anthology will have women reading and thinking and sharing for a long time.
