An Intricate Weave: Women Write about Girls and GirlhoodFrom Booklist:
In poetry, fiction, essay, and, especially, memoir, women writers talk about that crucial time before puberty when girls are strong and confident, before they learn to crush their dreams and not compete with men. Some of the writers are didactic and self-congratulatory, as though they are discovering the theme, but the outsider story of "the girl within" is a big mainstream subject now, and the best pieces, fiction and nonfiction, are powerful and complex. Their truth is in their particulars, whether they are about mothers, daughters, sisters, mentors, friends, or the stranger who sets you free. A woman in one story acknowledges the inspiration of her ardent, unglamorous math teacher. In another story, a married woman remembers her awkward childhood crush on her best friend. In the pieces by Julie Alvarez, Lucille Clifton, Adrienne Rich, and many new voices, readers will recognize their own defining experiences of failure and rebellion. Hazel Rochman
