Product description

Review

Essential reading * Fay Weldon * A brilliant, bracing book...The world has changed - a bit - over the past decade and a half, but not enough: this remains essential reading * Guardian * The most important feminist publication since The Female Eunuch Powerful... No other work has...so honestly depicted the confusion of accomplished women who feel emotionally and physically tortured by the need to look like movie stars * New York Times * A smart, angry, insightful book, and a clarion call to freedom. Every woman should read it --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
