SPINSTER Making a Life of One's Own

by | Read by Kate Bolick

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Kate Bolick considers the question of two competing forces facing contemporary women today: societal pressure to get married and the desire to remain an independent single woman. Bolick takes on an academic tone while narrating her work with precise diction and pronunciation befitting her literary approach to her topic. Bolick explores the possibility of living an unconventional life through a selection of five literary women in recent history who, in her estimation, espouse the "spinster" lifestyle to which she aspires, and whom she designates as her "awakeners." The result is an academic and historical approach to the author's contemporary experiences as both a coupled and an uncoupled woman. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
