Product description

Review

A gloriously fearless writer * TLS * Despentes argues compellingly about women's guilt, men's power and the way that both are still abused three decades after the supposed triumph of feminism. * Independent on Sunday * A breath of fresh air, this vehement affirmation of liberty, this cry of a woman for women * Le Monde * A darkly disturbing road-trip thriller * Diva * Acerbic and perceptive, and there is a refreshingly transgressive spirit to much of what goes on here ... Apocalypse Baby undoubtedly has a lot to say about modern France, and its depiction of the fraught nature of 21st-century living is assured and insightful. Sexual power, politics, literature, racism and violence all come under Despentes's withering gaze -- Doug Johnstone * Independent on Sunday * Acerbic and perceptive, and there is a refreshingly transgressive spirit to much of what goes on -- Doug Johnstone * Independent on Sunday * An entertaining but uneasy mix of nihilistic dash and posh-Paris satire * London Review of Books * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
