Guardian review ~"A history of women's reading, & those who opposed it"

"Belinda Jack... in her book on women readers – which is, inevitably, also a book on women writers – covers palaeolithic wall-paintings to 21st-century reading-groups in 300 pages. So she can't include everything... her book repeatedly tells... of the way that the woman reader has persisted and thrived under all kinds of conditions. Ambitions, strategies, arguments, bold moves, curiosity and desire have kept her going, for 40 centuries."
