Moira Russell Isn't it beautiful? This book is one of my all-time favourites.


Jamie I haven't read it since high school, but it's on the syllabus for a class I'm taking this semester, and I couldn't be more excited for an opportunity to re-read it. It was like a feminist awakening (har har) for seventeen-year-old me.

I think I read it around that time too - it's so gorgeous, and so sad. I never got over the bit where she says to Robert 'If my husband said to you "Here she is, take her, she is yours" I would laugh at you both' and he utterly Doesn't Get It.
