Let’s shift this conversation to some positive depictions of women, both in sacred/archetypal history and today! My new friend Elissa Elliott, a Books & Culture contributor, is now blogging. You should start reading her ruminations here. At the top of the new year, her provocative Eve: A Novel of the First Woman will be coming out from Delacorte Press (Bantam/Dell) at the first of 2009. Think The Red Tent in the 21st century.
Special related note: We are once again looking for a few good Ooze Select bloggers, to help populate a new cotiere of intrepid bibliophiles. If you’re interested, drop me an email at zoecarnate [at] theooze [dot] com and I’ll give you the full lowdown!
