The Little Book of Feminist Saints
by Julia Pierpont and Manjitt Thapp

Not writers--that's Virginia Wolf And not words either--there lies the realm of Audre Lord. And she's not the Matron saint of Darcys either, although that's a pretty good guess.
No, Saint Austen is the patron of irony. Her writing was so scandalous her family destroyed most of it and she herself felt sickened by perfection, but modern Jane Austen has been claimed by those who celebrate purity and chaste love.
