The Eclectic Work of Joanna Russ: Feminist Science Fiction & Literary Criticism

Read my new post at Thornfield Hall Redux.

Joanna Russ (1937-2011), a literary critic and English professor at the University of Washington, is best known for her feminist science fiction novel, The Female Man (1975). I recently discovered her charming first novel, Picnic on Paradise (1968), included in the Library of America volume, American Science Fiction: Four Classics (1968-1969), and also write here about her book of literary criticism, How to Suppress Women’s Writing.
