Biting the Moon
A Memoir of Feminism and Motherhood

Joanne S. Frye

Cloth $27.95    |    978-0-8156-0969-8    |    2012

"The story is here and it is dramatic, compelling and important. I won’t forget it."—Elaine Neil Orr, author of Gods of Noonday: A White Girl’s African Life

"The power of this book is that it speaks to people in many walks of life, men as well as women, single parents and parents in couples, people across generations. In that sense it is a memoir in the best sense—that it speaks to universal struggles and concerns. Readers will be captivated."—Jane Lazarre, author of Inheritance: A Novel

"This memoir makes a real contribution to the ever-growing body of testimonial literature that contemporary feminism has given rise to. I applaud the difficult truth-telling it embodies."—Vivian Gornick, author of Fierce Attachments: A Memoir
