Heartbreak

Heartbreak

The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant

Always innovative, often provocative, and frequently polarizing, Andrea Dworkin has carved out a unique position as one of the women’s movement’s most influential figures, from the early days of consciousness-raising to the “post-feminist” present. Heartbreak reveals for the first time the personal side of Dworkin’s lifelong journey as an activist and a writer. By turns wry, spirited, and poignant, Dworkin tells the story of how she evolved from a childhood lover of music and books into a college activist, embraced her role as an international advocate for women, and emerged as a maverick thinker at odds with both the liberal left and the mainstream women’s movement. Throughout, Dworkin displays a writer’s genius for expressing emotional truth and an intellectual’s gift for conveying the excitement of ideas and words. Beautifully written and surprisingly intimate, Heartbreak is a portrait of a soul, and a mind, in the making.
