Review:

An indispensable and extremely well-organized treasure map to literature by women. Contains brief reviews of 500 books by women, and seven cross-referenced indexes to identify books by author, title, genre, topic, and even country of book content. Highly recommended!

From the Publisher:

500 Great Books By Women: A Reader's Guide, is a wide-ranging and articulate guide to books by women authors from around the world and throughout history. This unique resource is co-authored by Erica Bauermeister, who has taught at the University of Washington and Antioch University; Holly Smith, the manager of an independent bookstore for over ten years; and Jesse Larsen, a working-class artist and writer now living in Vermont. Joining them are thirty other lovers of words -- from engineers to teachers to mothers to artists -- women writing about books that touched their lives. Each 200-250 word annotation is written to give the reader a sense of the book's style and content. The annotations are organized by theme with seven cross-reference indexes. From the 13th century novel/diary of Lady Nijo to contemporary works by Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer, Isabelle Allende and Diane Ackerman, 500 Great Books By Women offers a world of reading to all.
