Susan Griffin is one of my all time favorite writers. She explores the human condition with a poetic fortitude. She boldly and courageously confronts human and organizational systems with critical thought and deep compassion. She is the kind of writer I wish to emulate.

This is a brilliant collection of essays by feminist Susan Griffin.
The last chapters of her book are devoted to CFS reflections.
