She's the Boss Literary critic and London Review of Books contributor Terry Castle says, ""It's a sad life one leads as a Female Literary Critic. All that pressure to live up to masculine expectations."" She has penned a challenging and thought-provoking collection of essays that serve as ""a kind of brief on behalf of female authority,"" entitled Boss Ladies, Watch Out! Essays on Women, Sex and Writing. The book's first part features longer, somewhat formal, scholarly pieces; the second portion is composed of essays that began as ""review-articles."" The fiery pieces address Jane Austen, Ann Radcliffe, Gertrude Stein, Edmund White and others. (Sept. 1)
