He Said What: Women Write about Moments When Everything Changed
In He Said What?, twenty-six gifted women writers share profoundly personal moments in which a man in their life said something good or bad that changed them irrevocably. Joyce Maynard reveals the profound humiliation and trauma she suffered when, after dropping out of Yale to move in with J.D. Salinger at just 18, he suddenly ordered her to pack her bags and leave. Author and screenwriter Amy Ferris writes about what her father said to her after she dropped out of high school at 15 right before she flew across the country to hitchhike her way from San Francisco to an Oregon commune. With additional contributions from Dr. Margot Duxler, Beverly Donofrio, Sherry Glaser, Abby Frucht, Jane Ganahl, Christine Kehl O Hagan, Susanne Dunlap, and Caroline Leavitt, this is a beautifully-penned, intimate collection of stories about the powerful impact that the right or the wrong words can have on a person's life.
