Recollections of My Non-Existence

£9.99

This is a memoir from the author of ‘Men Explain Things to Me’ that asks how a young writer finds her voice in a society that prefers women to be silent. From the era of punk, growing gay pride and West Coast activism through to the latter years of second-wave feminism and the present day, this is the foundational story of an emerging artist struggling against violence and oppression. It is an electric account of the pauses and gains in feminism over the past forty years.

Description

In 1981, Rebecca Solnit rented a studio apartment in San Francisco, her home for the next twenty-five years. There she began the process of forging a voice in a society that preferred women to be silent. Liberated by West Coast activism, growing gay pride and punk rock, she broke through oppression and over time transformed into a writer and activist who speaks for the marginalised – galvanised to use her own voice for change. Recollections of My Non-Existence is the landmark memoir from a voice of a generation, and a rally cry for generations to come.
