0918949491 9.2 x 7.0 x 0.7 inches From Library Journal Editor of many anthologies, including When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, (Papier-Mache Pr., 1987), Martz is also founder of Papier-Mache Press. Her newest collection continues to feature prose, poetry, and photography by and about women, but the theme here is life as it is experienced through the female body. It would have been easy to compile a much thicker volume, but in the space provided she manages to select an impressive array of perspectives. The pieces are organized as if to follow the chronological life cycle, yet the overall resonance of the many voices being born and giving birth is anything but linear. Tending toward the emotive and always from the subjective, these pieces articulate what it is like to be Everywoman from every age. An inspirational glimpse geared toward general readership. Susan M.

Inhaltsangabe: 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.

"These pieces articulate what it is like to be Everywoman from every age." (Library Journal)
Expressing the many aspects of women becoming comfortable with their bodies, these writers tackle a sensitive subject with grace and eloquence in this "honest exposure of private space." (Indianapolis News)
