Every time I read Rebecca Solnit, I wonder why I do not read her work more often. Intelligent, eloquent, thoughtful feminist writing. What more could a woman want?
Rebecca Solnit, man. Every time I read her, I feel like my mind opens a bit more, and I can see things a little more clearly. In this collection of essays, she focuses her sharp, grounded powers of analysis mainly on the subject of silence - who is silenced (spoiler: it's basically everyone except cishet white men), how, and what happens when the silence is shattered.
