Streets Of Desire: Women's Fictions of the Twentieth Century City

Streets Of Desire: Women's Fictions of the Twentieth Century City

by LizHeron (Editor)

Synopsis

In this anthology, some of the 20th-century's most celebrated women writers illuminate the life of the world's great cities - from London, Paris and New York to Shanghai, Buenos Aires and Cairo. The writings show the city as a place where independence can be negotiated and freedoms explored, as a place of sexual danger or trancendent desire, or as an encounter with politics and history. The anthology includes work by Ingeborg Bachmann, Djuna Barnes, Margaret Drabble, Maureen Duffy, Toni Morrison, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Richardson, Cora Sandal, Christina Stead, Christa Wolf and Virginia Woolf.
