Wild Women and Books is a celebration of perhaps the most revered and radical women writers of history. Beginning with the first recorded writer of either gender to date, Enheduanna of Sumeria, and ending with acclaimed authors of today, including Toni Morrison and J.K. Rowling, this is a must-read for those who must read.
The tumultuous and admirable paths of more than one hundred female authors are brought to life. From religious transcribers and political dissidents to erotic playwrights and romantic poets, no subject or literary form is left untouched. In honour of those women whose pens pioneered, persevered, and proved that the female voice is brilliant, we invite you to read.
