Three books dealing with, and by, women's lives.
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith: so, I was under the impression that this book was similar to We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. It really, really isn't. It was ok but since it was so far from what I expected I was disappointed. also, the sisters annoyed me. a 4.
How to Suppress Women's Writing by Joanna Russ: a non-fiction book about, well, women's writing. Highly recommended. a 7.
Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters: a book about Victorian lesbians. really liked this one too! a 7.
