In a departure from the norm, NCR was sufficiently intrigued by a recent book to ask three of our younger married writers to review it. As a bonus, we asked the reviewers if they would mind introducing us also to their families. -- Arthur Jones, books editor
The New Feminist Agenda is a page-turner. That’s what I told my husband when he asked me what I was reading. However, chatting with neighbors as our kids played, I did not dare reveal my secret summer reading. It seemed to pale in comparison with their discussion of the Fifty Shades of Grey book series. That uncomfortable dynamic alone reveals one of Madeleine M. Kunin’s theses -- that we need to complete the feminist agenda of the ’60s and ’70s.
