"This vastly learned and magnificently iconoclastic book is a fresh examination of the social and sexual status of aging women - and in particular the way that status has shaped their relationships with younger men. Drawing on a close analysis of myth and history, literature and pop culture, it simultaneously manages to reveal societal prejudices and burst through them, with an intellectual authority and elan that recall classics from 'The Second Sex' to 'The Feminine Mystique'. Book weight approx. 435g.
