Heartbreak: The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant

by Andrea Dworkin - £18.99  Continuum International Publishing Group (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780826494429 | ISBN 10: 0826494420

Always innovative, often provocative and frequently polarizing, Andrea Dworkin carved out a unique position as one of the most influential figures of the women's movement, from the early days of consciousness-raising to the 'post-feminist' present.
 
Published to coincide with the first anniversary of Dworkin's death, Heartbreak reveals the personal side of her journey as an activist & writer.
 
By turns wry, spirited and poignant, Dworkin tells the story of how she evolved from a childhood lover of music and books into a college activist, embraced her role as an international advocate for women and emerged as a maverick thinker at odds with both the liberal left and the mainstream women's movement. Beautifully written and surprisingly intimate, Heartbreak is a portrait of a soul, and a mind, in the making.

"... the story of a deeply committed human being willing to challenge injustice where she sees it ... In our deeply conformist age, Dworkin provides a model of conscience in action that should inspire everyone of any stripe to look, to listen, to think."
