Between Women: Biographers, Novelists, Critics, Teachers and Artists Write About Their Work on Women
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When first published in 1984, "Between Women" broke new ground in women's exploration of their own creative works, and those of the women preceeding them. As a document of the complex relationships between writers, teachers and artists and the women who have moved, shaped and inspired them, this collection is still unmatched. The book brings together the stories of biographers, novelists, scholars and artists, as they tell about their relationship with the "distant strangers" they have researched; the biases and hopes they brought with them; and what insights they have gained for themselves. The closing essay, "Looking for Zora", is an account by Alice Walker of her voyage to Florida to look for and mark the grave of Zora Neale Hurston. This collection of personal and often moving narratives aims to engage the reader and stir the imagination.
