Product description


Praise for Sarah Perry: 'A hugely talented author' -- Sarah Waters Perry is a wonderful descriptive writer with a remarkable talent for making the familiar strange ... She bleeds light into darkness and back again * The Times * A polemic that makes room for both Kim Kardashian and Harriet Martineau * Guardian Biggest Books of Autumn 2020 * The always-enthralling Perry returns with a spiky and subversive look at the power of all things Essex - and a feminist defence of "Essex girls". * the i Paper * The ever-brilliant Sarah Perry tackles Essex Girls and how women such as Rose Allin, abolitionist Anne Knight and Kim Kardashian (not from Essex but showing off the traits) know how to shake things up. * Stylist * Full of delights... Perry celebrates forward-thinking women who have been largely written out of history * Independent * In each account, as in her fiction, Perry displays her gift for peeling back the layers of our present day to exhume forgotten lives. The arguments are clear, the prose is stiletto sharp... The Essex Girl daringly holds up a mirror to the rest of Britain. * Daily Telegraph * Very enjoyable ... fascinating -- Jane Garvey, BBC R4 Woman's Hour
