Email or call for price
This prize-winning book is the first comparative study of Francophone authors Annie Ernaux, Nancy Huston and Nelly Arcan, exploring their representation of sex, sexuality and the body from a feminist perspective. Their 'frank' French feminist approach tackles gender inequality, sexism and misogyny while also addressing women's empowerment.
