I've ordered all her other books which look equally provocative! Largely, reviews for Griffin's work take opposing views on the intertwining and complicated connections she suggests between the woman and larger worldly issues such as war, disease, pornography, and nature itself. The details of clothing and fashion, interior design, and the amazing gentility and refinement of the life of high society are stunning. Beautifully written, insightful, disturbing, enlightening--I highly recommend!! I know now that never when I begin to write will I truly know what or how my vision will become. And I am now even more interested in knowing about the men and their attitudes, this strange to me society with the most amazing double standards, where a man could have mistress after mistress, and his wife was expected to be as pure as the driven snow. Their lives were defined by wealthy men.

Griffin has also contributed a number of essays to anthologies including a collection that, along with psychologist Karin Carrington, she edited for UC Press, titled Transforming Terror: Remembering the Soul of the World, with contributions by authors from over 24 countries, that offers a new paradigm for moving the world beyond violence as the first, and often only, response to violence.

Inthis collection was given the prestigious Gradiva Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. I'm glad, I think, that I put my head down and staggered through Susan Griffin's A Chorus of Stones, but it's a book that takes a toll.

The details are fascinating. Unremembered Country has been described as a poetic mosaic of female self-discovery. In , this collection was given the prestigious Gradiva Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. Her work has been translated into over a dozen languages. Their lives were defined by wealthy men. I've ordered all her other books which look equally provocative! BUT - if you learned to do this well - you could become rich beyond your wildest dreams, Kept, the bedmate of Kings and Nobility. My experience with this book hinges on having read much of it while rattling around in the back seat of a fifteen-passenger van, the great Southwestern deserts jumbling together outside of my window.

Just not in the car, on the way to tour the most irradiated spot on the planet. I will forever connect its content with my trip to the Nevada Test Site, not only because I happened to bookend the trip with the actual book, reading it on the ways there and back, but because much of Griffin's writing centers on the history of nuclear weaponry.

The details of clothing and fashion, interior design, and the amazing gentility and refinement of the life of high society are stunning. The details are fascinating. She also includes the dancer Nijinsky. It's an emotionally devastating book, and not the sort of pleasurable read I would generally pick for a road trip.

She is at work now on a novel about climate change and a non-fiction book, The Book of Housewifery, about the hidden meanings and values in domesticity. As any true hedonist understands, Desire is the greater part of Pleasure.

If you were not - you often were a working woman who could expect a short life.
