Books
"For nearly fifty years, Vivian Gornick's essays have explored feminism and writing, literature and culture, politics and personal experience. Drawing on writing from the course of her career, this book illuminates one of the driving themes behind Gornick's work: the painful process of understanding one's self that binds us to the larger world"-- Provided by publisher.
