Product Details


An experience not to be missed. 
San Francisco Chronicle

“I kept forgetting it was fiction . . . [French’s] women pulse with life and individuality.”
The New York Times

“A book with such honesty, humor, tough sad wisdom and stylistic surety that it speaks from a place where every woman may have been but few have ever articulated . . . Exciting . . . Far-reaching . . . As raggedly true as life . . . I can’t think of one novel that has affected me the way The Women’s Room has!”
The Boston Globe

“An important fictional account of a whole generation of women . . . Arresting, very real and poignant.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“I know these women. I’ve held their hands when their marriages fell apart and cried in their arms when mine did. . . . The characters in The Women’s Room are my friends and I love them immeasurably. The book accomplishes for my generation what Doris Lessing’s The Golden Notebook did for hers.”
The Baltimore Sun

“The kind of book that changes lives.”
—Fay Weldon

“[The Women’s Room] seized me by my preconceptions and I kept struggling and arguing with its premises. ‘Men can’t be that bad,’ I kept wanting to shout at the narrator. ‘There must be room for accommodation between the sexes that you’ve somehow overlooked.’ And the damnable thing is, she’s right.”
Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

“Today’s Desperate Housewives eat your heart out! This is the original and still the best, a page-turner that makes you think.”
—Kate Mosse, bestselling author of Labyrinth

“Courageous . . . honest . . . powerful. A book you’d like to give to twenty women (and perhaps anonymously, twenty men).”
Chicago Tribune
