Whose Story is This? Old Conflicts, New Chapters
Powerful, incisive, inspiring, a fourth essay collection from the bestselling author of the iconic Men Explain Things To Me.
Who gets to shape the narrative of our times?
The current moment is a battle over that foundational power. Women, people of colour and non-straight people are telling other versions, and white men in particular are fighting to preserve their own centrality. In this outstanding collection of essays by one of the most prescient and insightful commentators today, Solnit appraises the voices that are emerging, why they matter and the obstacles they face in making themselves heard.
Rebecca Solnit is author of, among other books, Call Them By Their True Names, Mother of All Questions, Men Explain Things to Me, Wanderlust, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, Hope in the Dark, the NBCC award-winning River of Shadows and A Paradise Built in Hell. A contributing editor to Harper’s, she writes regularly for the London Review of Books and the Los Angeles Times. She lives in San Francisco.
