Women Who Write Are Dangerous Summary

Women Who Write Are Dangerous by Stefan Bollmann

A sequel to the best-selling Women Who Read Are Dangerous, presenting portraits and profiles of fearless women writers past and present Writing has not always been considered a suitable career for women. Indeed, it was once common for women authors to adopt a masculine pseudonym in order to be taken seriously. And even today, some women writers still struggle to obtain the same recognition that is given to their male counterparts. Nevertheless, women throughout the ages have overcome these obstacles to create literature of enduring importance. This attractive book brings together paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs of some fifty outstanding women authors, from Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, and George Sand to Dorothy Parker, Simone de Beauvoir, and Toni Morrison. Each image is accompanied by an engaging commentary on the writer depicted, discussing the highlights of her career and the major themes of her work. Full of insight and inspiration, this is the perfect gift for any woman who writes.

Women Who Write Are Dangerous Reviews

"For women who disrupt narratives - and those who admire them - this is both a powerful volume ... and a lovely survey of just under 50 women writers from across the centuries..." -The Toronto Star "A handsome compilation of images and short biographical essays on female writers in this coffee-table volume. ... In a world in which women's writing is still routinely underreviewed and underrated, a book celebrating this work will always be a welcome contribution. Both those who know these writers well and newcomers to their work should enjoy this excursion into the rich waters of literature written by women." -Publishers Weekly "...a timely response to the ongoing lack of attention paid to female authors. ... As a coffee-table book, with full-color images of the women profiled, including Jane Austen, the Brontes, George Sand, Astrid Lindgren, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath, Dorothy Parker, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, this is a lovely project." -Library Journal
