Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women

Love her writing or hate it (there doesn't seem to be an in-between) Elizabeth Wurzel's brand of confessional feminism is iconic of an age, and her second book, Bitch, might be the most iconic of all. The New York Times' Karen Lerhman wrote that while Bitch "is full of enormous contradictions, bizarre digressions and illogical outbursts, it is also one of the more honest, insightful and witty books on the subject of women to have come along in a while." If this era of resurgent, violent sexism in the public eye fills you with rage, this book may just give you the language you need to feel and express it fully.
