REVOLUTION FROM WITHIN by Gloria Steinem
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Jan. 21, 1992

"A piquant counterpoint to recently revitalized, outer-directed feminist fashion."
In the wake of such feminist calls-to-arms as Susan Faludi's Backlash (p. 1133), Paula Kamen's Feminist Fatale (p. 1137), and Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth (p. 389), Steinem's inwardly turned examination of how men and women sabotage themselves by suppressing the ``child within'' appears decidedly retro.

GLORIA by Keith Maillard
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 2000

"A meticulously observed, immensely satisfying finale."
The West Virginia-born Maillard (now a resident of Vancouver) wraps up a trilogy (Light in the Company of Women, 1994; Hazard Zones, 1996) with the kind of big, stubbornly old-fashioned narrative that was a publisher's bread-and-butter in the 1940s and '50s. Read full book review >

GLORIA by Kerry Young
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 16, 2013

"Not quite a love story and not quite a feminist bouquet, but a well-seasoned hybrid."
The hoodlum and the whore: Those labels are accurate but inadequate for the title characters of Young's debut Pao (2011) and this lively companion piece; both are set in mid-20th-century Jamaica. Read full book review >
