** The wise, warm, defiant meditation on what it means to be a woman from literary legend Isabel Allende ** 'Allende combine[s] wit with anger as she picks apart the patriarchy' Independent 'Full of Isabel's wisdom and warm words' Grazia 'Allende has everything it takes: the ear, the eye, the mind, the heart, the all-encompassing humanity' New York Times _______________ When I say that I was a feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating. As a child, Isabel Allende watched her mother, abandoned by her husband, provide for her three small children. As a young woman coming of age in the late 1960s, she rode the first wave of feminism. She has seen what has been accomplished by the movement in the course of her lifetime. And over the course of three marriages, she has learned how to grow as a woman while having a partner, when to step away, and the rewards of embracing one's sexuality. So what do women want? To be safe, to be valued, to live in peace, to have their own resources, to be connected, to have control over their bodies and lives, and above all, to be loved. On all these fronts, there is much work to be done, and this book, Allende hopes, will light the torch of our daughters and granddaughters with mine. They will have to live for us, as we lived for our mothers, and carry on with the work still left to be finished. _______________ 'Her thoughts, language and ideas traverse fluidly through ideas of gender, historic injustices, her marriages and bodily experiences and literary references . . . Allendes love for women is palpable' - Sydney Morning Herald An Independent, Guardian and Grazia Highlight for 2021
