Praise

“Now finally the last first generation feminist book.”—Kate Millett, author of Sexual Politics

“Frank, no-nonsense reflections by the French novelist about her gradual road to feminism through World War II, three husbands and the embrace of the writing life…A cleareyed memoir by a writer resolved to claim her ‘place on the battlefield of feminism.'”—Kirkus

“[Groult] endears herself to readers through profound insights and a generous sense of humor; her honest and occasionally bawdy style is a major plus….this book embodies what an autobiography should be: a careful selection of memories, anecdotes, and observations that gives the feeling of having conversed with a wonderful and memorable person.”—Publishers Weekly

My Escape is written in a way that reveals the author’s voice, the author’s mind. It is written in a style that is intelligent and thoughtful, warm and humorous, both thought provoking and touching…My Escape is utterly accessible and reveals a woman who has lived a life that stretches beyond the world of Academia…a gem of a book, written by a woman who is an example to all of us…she is real, working tirelessly for the cause of Feminism whilst living and loving, doubting and struggling. She is a woman of passion and commitment and a woman I would love to meet.”—Seattle Pi

“Her feminism is the feminism of every woman…She does not approach feminism from a dry academic position, but from the vibrant stance of a woman who has lived life to the full and who has fought for equal rights whilst being a mother, a wife, a grandmother and a professional writer.”—BC Books
