Katie Roiphe, Take 2
A must-read by Rebecca Traister appears in today's Salon: "Katie Roiphe's Morning After". Katie's new book, Uncommon Arrangements: Seven Portraits of Married Life in Literary London, is being met with rave reviews. And in her profile of feminism's enfant terrible, Rebecca does a trademark excellent job of deconstructing a grown up and somewhat reconstructed Katie Roiphe. She asks a telling question: Is it Katie, or her critics, or both, who have grown up?
Rebecca and I share something massively in common: Katie Roiphe is part of the reason we do what we do. (Check out page 3!)
