1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse. 1969 - Feminists storm Miss World. NOW - Caitlin Moran calls Katie Price 'a mimsy Quisling f**k' and demands to know why pants are getting smaller. There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few, nagging questions do remaina Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina? Why does your bra hurt? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby? Part-memoir, part-rant, How To Be A Woman follows Caitlin Moran from her terrible 13th birthday ("I am thirteen stone, I have no friends, and boys throw gravel at me when they see me.") through adolescence, the workplace, strip-clubs, love, fat, abortion, TopShop, motherhood and beyond. After 100,000 years of the patriarchy, the world may never be the same again!

THE INSTANT BESTSELLER • An indelible portrait of girls, the women they become, and that moment in life when everything can go horribly wrong NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post • NPR • The Guardian • Entertainment Weekly • San Francisco Chronicle • Financial Times • Esquire • Newsweek • Vogue • Glamour • People • The Huffington Post • Elle • Harper’s Bazaar • Time Out • BookPage • Publishers Weekly • Slate Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence. Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize • Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle John Leonard Award • Shortlisted for The Center for Fiction First Novel Prize • The New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice • Emma Cline—One of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists Praise for The Girls “Emma Cline has an unparalleled eye for the intricacies of girlhood, turning the stuff of myth into something altogether more intimate.”—Lena Dunham “Spellbinding . . . a seductive and arresting coming-of-age story.”—The New York Times Book Review “Extraordinary . . .

In the cult dynamic, Cline has seen something universal—emotions, appetites, and regular human needs warped way out of proportion—and in her novel she’s converted a quintessentially ’60s story into something timeless.”—Christian Lorentzen, New York
The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl

Author: David Ebershoff

ISBN: 195253318X
Pages: 328
Year: 2015-12-01
Starring Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne and directed by Academy Award-winner Tom Hooper, this major motion picture portrays an unforgettable celebration of love. It starts with a question, a simple favour asked by a wife of her husband, setting off a transformation neither can anticipate. Einar Wegener and his American wife Greta Waud have been married for six years, but are yet to have a child. Both painters, they live a life of bohemian languor in Copenhagen until one day their lives are irreversibly altered. The Danish Girl eloquently shows the intimacy that defines a marriage and the nearly forgotten story of the love between a man who discovers that he is, in fact, a woman, and his wife who would sacrifice anything for him. Set against the glitz and decadence of 1920s Copenhagen, Paris and Dresden, and inspired by a true story, The Danish Girl is about one of the most passionate and unusual marriages of the twentieth century. 'a story of true love, suffering and sacrifice' - Sunday Telegraph

A national bestseller combining the emotional depth of The Art of Racing in the Rain with the magical spirit of The Life of Pi, “Lily and the Octopus is the dog book you must read this summer” (The Washington Post). Ted—a gay, single, struggling writer is stuck: unable to open himself up to intimacy except through the steadfast companionship of Lily, his elderly dachshund. When Lily’s health is compromised, Ted vows to save her by any means necessary. By turns hilarious and poignant, an adventure with spins into magic realism and beautifully evoked truths of loss and longing, Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all. Introducing a dazzling and completely original new voice in fiction and an unforgettable hound that will break your heart—and put it back together again. Remember the last book you told someone they had to read? Lily and the Octopus is the next one. “Startlingly imaginative...this love story is sure to assert its place in the canine lit pack...Be prepared for outright laughs and searing or silly moments of canine and human recognition. And grab a tissue: “THERE! WILL! BE! EYE! RAIN!” (New York Newsday).

Problemas de las mujeres, problemas de la sociedad

Pages: 260
Year: 2009-01-15
Este cuarto número de la Colección Temas de Trabajo Social está dedicado a poner en evidencia el trabajo desarrollado por varias investigadoras de la Universidad de Deusto en áreas como la sociología, el derecho, el trabajo social, la filología, la psicología..., y que tienen en común el hecho de tratar temas de género y problemas de las mujeres. PROBLEMAS DE LAS MUJERES, PROBLEMAS DE LA SOCIEDAD pretende hacer presente la idea de que los problemas que tienen las mujeres no son ajenos al conjunto de la sociedad, sino que, por el contrario, la sociedad debe de ser consciente de que tiene problemas cuando los tienen las mujeres que la integran. Las distintas contribuciones se articulan en torno a tres ejes, el primero se centra en poner en evidencia las contradicciones entre la pretendida igualdad entre mujeres y hombres y la realidad de los modos de pensamiento y acción que son desiguales; el segundo eje se centra en la literatura del siglo XX y el papel de las mujeres; el tercer eje agrupa artículos que tratan tres temas de actualidad como la inmigración, lo laboral y el trabajo en el hogar, y la violencia doméstica, desde una perspectiva de género.

Cómo ser mujer

Cómo ser mujer

Author: Caitlin Moran
Publisher: Anagrama
ISBN: 8433927825
Pages: 360
Year: 2013-06-24
No hubo nunca mejor época que ésta para ser mujer: tenemos el voto y la píldora, y desde 1727 ya no nos envían a la hoguera por brujas. Pero, ¿cómo ser mujer? Esa es precisamente la gran, eterna pregunta a la que Caitlin Moran se propone responder en una obra que aborda a calzón quitado ?a veces literalmente?, con inteligencia, desvergüenza e ironía y también una salvaje franqueza, los principales aspectos de la condición femenina. Mezcla de libro de memorias y de divertida vociferación, apoyándose siempre en sus experiencias como mujer, feminista e hija de una familia numerosa y proletaria, Caitlin Moran se describe con una sinceridad y una audacia militantes, y habla con absoluta sinceridad de su relación con su cuerpo. Y con la comida, con los hombres, con el trabajo, la sexualidad, la maternidad, el aborto. Pero también escribe sobre la importancia de Lady Gaga, y los errores y horrores de la depilación más íntima, o el botox. Y sobre mucho más. Así, alternando provocativas observaciones sobre la vida de las mujeres con historias ferozmente divertidas sobre sí misma, desnuda, deconstruye y arroja al fuego la imagen políticamente correcta de la mujer del siglo XXI. Y nos descubre página tras página esos secretos que se cuentan en voz baja las amigas verdaderas, y no esas equívocas colegas que jamás se quitan la máscara de la feminidad perfecta. «El feminismo, sostiene Caitlin Moran, es demasiado importante para que se lo dejemos a los académicos. Y su libro, tan brillante y tan necesario, tan implacablemente cómico y tan serio, es precisamente lo que el feminismo estaba esperando» (Frances Wilson, Times Literary Supplement). «Digámoslo de entrada: este libro es un bombazo. Hay frases que os harán reír a carcajadas, situaciones reales como la vida misma, y en las que os reconoceréis, asombradas. Y es muy, muy divertido... El gran mérito de Cómo ser mujer es que contribuye a la confianza en sí misma de las mujeres. Y nos recuerda que el sexismo, y todo lo que va unido a él, no sólo es represivo, sino aburrido y estúpido» (Miranda Sawyer, The Observer).
Life A User's Manual

Life A User's Manual

Author: Georges Perec
Publisher: David R. Godine Publisher
ISBN: 1567925561
Pages: 680
Year: 2009-01-01
Over twenty years ago, Godine published the first English translation of Georges Perec's masterpiece, Life A User's Manual, hailed by the Times Literary Supplement, Boston Globe, and others as "one of the great novels of the century." We are now proud to announce a newly revised twentieth anniversary edition of Life. Carefully prepared, with many corrections, this edition of Life A User's Manual will be the preferred reference edition for the future. Life is an unclassified masterpiece, a sprawling compendium as encyclopedic as Dante's Commedia and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and, in its break with tradition, as inspiring as Joyce's Ulysses. Structured around a single moment in time — 8:00 p.m. on June 23, 1975 — Perec's spellbinding puzzle begins in an apartment block in the XVIIth arrondissement of Paris where, chapter by chapter, room by room, like an onion being peeled, an extraordinary rich cast of characters is revealed in a series of tales that are bizarre, unlikely, moving, funny, or (sometimes) quite ordinary. From the confessions of a racing cyclist to the plans of an avenging murderer, from a young ethnographer obsessed with a Sumatran tribe to the death of a trapeze artist, from the fears of an ex-croupier to the dreams of a sex-change pop star to an eccentric English millionaire who has devised the ultimate pastime, Life is a manual of human irony, portraying the mixed marriages of fortunes, passions and despairs, betrayals and bereavements, of hundreds of lives in Paris and around the world. But the novel is more than an extraordinary range of fictions; it is a closely observed account of life and experience. The apartment block's one hundred rooms are arranged in a magic square, and the book as a whole is peppered with a staggering range of literary puzzles and allusions, acrostics, problems of chess and logic, crosswords, and mathematical formula. All are there for the reader to solve in the best tradition of the detective novel.

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday

Author: Graham Swift
Publisher: Vintage
ISBN: 1101947535
Pages: 192
Year: 2016-04-19
A luminous, intensely moving tale that begins with a secret lovers’ assignation in the spring of 1924, then unfolds to reveal the whole of a remarkable life. Twenty-two-year-old Jane Fairchild has worked as a maid at an English country house since she was sixteen. For almost all of those years she has been the clandestine lover to Paul Sheringham, young heir of a neighboring house. The two now meet on an unseasonably warm March day—Mothering Sunday—a day that will change Jane’s life forever. As the narrative moves back and forth from 1924 to the end of the century, what we know and understand about Jane—about the way she loves, thinks, feels, sees, remembers—expands with every vividly captured moment. Her story is one of profound self-discovery, and through her, Graham Swift has created an emotionally soaring, deeply affecting work of fiction. From the Hardcover edition.
