Sarah Glazer asks why this feminist novelist doesn’t translate well to America

 How does it feel when you can’t see the greatness in a writer reputed to be one of England’s major feminist novelists?

 A little lousy, frankly. That was my feeling after tackling Angela Carter’s last novel, Wise Children, published in…

Dominique Millette's disturbing blog about women being expected to be sexually available at co-ed busines functions does indeed provide another reason why women may be reluctant to network in those settings--self-preservation.

Sarah, you've shamed me. I've been fiddling about with an idea for a Salon and haven't done anything about it. Your post really hit the button. I've been a member of RSL of years and every time I go to a function I get little tickles on my flesh that make me want to break out into an outrageous Bette Midler routine and go splat on their cliquey moue-ness. If I can't join your Salon I think I may well weep!
All power to you, Sarah.
