Book Review: Wild Women

Author: Eds Sue Thomas
Title: Wild Women
Call No: 306.766 THO

Capitalizing on the appeal of Clarissa Pinkola Este’s popular Women Who Run with the Wolves (LJ 6/15/92), editor Thomas has prepared this volume of short stories that “bring together modern examples of the warrior guises of Wild Woman.” Thomas, a novelist and writing instructor whose own “All Strapped In” is included in the volume, divides the works into eight thematic sections-empowerment, sex, and righteous rage, among them-and provides informative introductory remarks to each section. The short stories come from a politically correct mix of contemporary women writers that include Isabel Allende, Margaret Atwood, Pam Houston, Alice Walker, and a number of emerging voices. It’s not an essential purchase, but your Wild Women readers will want to check it out.
