Selected Reviews

The Women’s Review of Books has been publishing for 35 years, providing a forum for book reviews and review essays on fiction and nonfiction works by women on a wide array of subjects. I was honored to be asked to write these two reviews for them, one of Alison Lurie’s Don’t Tell the Grownups: The Subversive Power of Children’s Literature, (“Arrested Development” ) and another on histories of the admission of women to military academies (“Arms and the Woman”).
