WOMEN DON’T ASK The High Cost of Avoiding Negotiation—and Positive Strategies for Change By Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever y neglecting to negotiate her starting salary for her first job, a woman may sacrifice over half a million dollars in earnings by the end of her career. As research reveals, men are four times more likely to ask for higher pay than women are with the same qualifications. From career promotions to help with child care, studies show time and again that women don’t ask—and frequently don’t even realize that they can.

B

In Women Don’t Ask, Professor Linda C. Babcock and Sara Laschever examine the barriers holding women back and the social forces constraining them.The authors show women how to reframe their interactions and more accurately evaluate their opportunities.They also remind all of us how to recognize the ways in which our institutions, child-rearing practices, and unspoken assumptions perpetuate inequalities—inequalities that are not only fundamentally unfair but also inefficient and economically unsound. With women’s progress toward full economic and social equality stalled, women’s lives becoming increasingly complex, and the structures of businesses changing, the ability to negotiate is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Drawing on research in psychology, sociology, economics, and organizational behavior as well as dozens of interviews with men and women, Women Don’t Ask is the first book to identify the dramatic difference between men and women in their propensity to negotiate for what they want. Praise for Women Don’t Ask “Raises important questions and sheds new light on a problem with which we will likely continue to grapple, in economies throughout the globe, for some time.” —Knowledge at Wharton

UNCONFESSED By Yvette Christiansë

Pen/Hemingway Award Finalist lavery as it existed in Africa has seldom been portrayed—and never with such texture, detail, and authentic emotion. Inspired by actual 19th-century court records, Unconfessed is a breathtaking literary tour de force. They called her Sila van den Kaap, slave woman of Jacobus Stephanus Van der Wat of Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. She is a woman moved from master to master, farm to farm, and—driven by the horrors of slavery to commit an unspeakable crime—from prison to prison. A woman fit for hanging... condemned to death on April 30, 1823, but whose sentence the English, having recently wrested authority from the Dutch settlers, saw fit to commute to a lengthy term on the notorious Robben Island.

S

Unconfessed is an epic novel that connects the reader to the unimaginable through the force of poetry and a farreaching imagination. Praise for Unconfessed

“Little has been written about what it was like to be a slave in South Africa under the early white settlers.This debut novel tells it through the first-person, present-tense narrative of Sila, once a slave, now a prisoner on Robben Island off Cape Town in the 1820s... the history is authentic, and Sila’s brave, desperate voice reveals the vicious brutality as well as surprising discoveries of love and friendship. Readers of Toni Morrison’s classic Beloved will recognize the story of a mother driven to save her children at any cost.”—Booklist

VICTORINE By Maude Hutchins Introduction by Terry Castle

utrageous, uninhibited, just plain weird—these are all ways to describe Maude Hutchins, a succès de scandale in the 1950s, whose sly and shocking work was subsequently forgotten but is here reintroduced to American readers for the first time in more than thirty years.

O

Hutchins had one theme—sex—which she explored with an extravagant, needling, disconcerting genius that sets her apart from writers before and after. Victorine, her best novel, is about a girl’s coming-of-age, or reluctance to, since the eponymous heroine, poised on the threshold of puberty, finds herself completely overwhelmed by her own physical nature in all its polymorphous and perverse insistence. For Victorine, her body is like a trap that threatens to snap shut on her with every thought. Meanwhile her older brother, Costello, has to come to terms with the chilly, domineering, philandering presence of their father, while their mother drifts through life in a stupefied daze. Victorine is a driveway snapshot of the great dysfunctional American family by a remarkable writer whose brilliant wordplay evokes Tristram Shandy even as she anticipates the contemporary sensibilities of Wes Anderson and Gus Van Sant.

PRETTY IS WHAT CHANGES Impossible Choices, The Breast Cancer Gene, and How I Defied My Destiny By Jessica Queller leven months after her mother succumbs to cancer, Jessica Queller has herself tested for the BRCA “breast cancer” gene mutation.The results come back positive, putting her at a terrifyingly elevated risk of developing breast cancer before the age of fifty and ovarian cancer in her lifetime.Thirty-four, unattached, and yearning for marriage and a family of her own, Queller faces an agonizing choice: a lifetime of vigilant screenings and a commitment to fight the disease when caught, or its radical alternative—a prophylactic double mastectomy that would effectively restore life to her, even as it would challenge her most closely held beliefs about body image, identity, and sexuality.

E

Superbly informed and armed with surprising wit and style, Queller takes us on an odyssey from the frontiers of science to the private interiors of a woman’s life. Pretty Is What Changes is an absorbing account of how she reaches her courageous decision and its physical, emotional, and philosophical consequences. It is also an incredibly moving story of what we inherit from our parents and how we fashion it into the stuff of our own lives, of mothers and daughters and sisters, and of the sisterhood that forms when women are united in battle against a common enemy.

KABUL BEAUTY SCHOOL An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil By Deborah Rodriguez

oon after the fall of the Taliban, in 2001, Deborah Rodriguez went to Afghanistan as part of a group offering humanitarian aid to this war-torn nation. Surrounded by men and women whose skills—as doctors, nurses, and therapists—seemed eminently more practical than her own, Rodriguez, a hairdresser and mother of two from Michigan, despaired of being of any real use.Yet she soon found she had a gift for befriending Afghans, and once her profession became known she was eagerly sought out by Westerners desperate for a good haircut and by Afghan women, who have a long and proud tradition of running their own beauty salons.Thus an idea was born.

With the help of corporate and international sponsors, the Kabul Beauty School welcomed its first class in 2003.Well meaning but sometimes brazen, Rodriguez stumbled through language barriers, overstepped cultural customs, and constantly juggled the challenges of a postwar nation even as she empowered her students to become their families’ breadwinners by learning the fundamentals of coloring techniques, haircutting, and makeup.

Yet within the small haven of the beauty school, the line between teacher and student quickly blurred as these vibrant women shared with Rodriguez their stories and their hearts: the newlywed who faked her virginity on her wedding night, the twelve-year-old bride sold into marriage to pay her family’s debts, the Taliban member’s wife who pursued her training despite her husband’s constant beatings.Through these and other stories, Rodriguez found the strength to leave her own unhealthy marriage and allow herself to love again, Afghan style. With warmth and humor, Rodriguez details the lushness of a seemingly desolate region and reveals the magnificence behind the burqa. Kabul Beauty School is a remarkable tale of an extraordinary community of women who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom.

UNCOMMON ARRANGEMENTS Seven Marriages By Katie Roiphe

atie Roiphe’s stimulating work has made her one of the most talked about cultural critics of her generation. Now this bracing young writer delves deeply into one of the most layered of subjects: marriage.

K

Drawn in part from the private memoirs, personal correspondence, and long-forgotten journals of the British literary community from 1910 to the Second World War, here are seven “marriages à la mode”—each rising to the challenge of intimate relations in more or less creative ways. Jane Wells, the wife of H.G., remained his rock, despite his decade-long relationship with Rebecca West (among others). Katherine Mansfield had an irresponsible, childlike romance with her husband, John Middleton Murry, which collapsed under the strain of real-life problems.Vera Brittain and George Gordon Catlin spent years in a “semidetached” marriage (he in America, she in England).Vanessa Bell maintained a complicated harmony with the painter Duncan Grant, whom she loved, and her husband, Clive. And her sister Virginia Woolf, herself no stranger to marital particularities, sustained a brilliant running commentary on the most intimate details of those around her. Every chapter revolves around a crisis that occurred in each of these marriages—as serious as life-threatening illness or as seemingly innocuous as a slightly tipsy dinner table conversation—and how it was resolved... or not resolved. In these portraits, Roiphe brilliantly evokes what are, as she says, “the fluctuations and shifts in attraction, the mysteries of lasting affection, the endurance and changes in love, and the role of friendship in marriage.”

The book follows the intertwined stories of Lois Long, a pioneer fashion columnist and original staff writer at The New Yorker; John Held, Jr. and Gordon Conway, America’s leading magazine cover artists in the twenties; Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, the most famous American celebrity couple of the twentieth century; Coco Chanel and Paul Poiret, the leading pioneers of Parisian couture; and Clara Bow, Colleen Moore and Louise Brooks, the great flapper triumvirate of Jazz-Age Hollywood. Flapper traces their lives to tell a larger story about the first sexual revolution. It also weaves a captivating narrative about the advent of America’s urban consumer culture, the rise of a new cult of celebrity, the emerging prominence of media and fashion elites, the maturation of the advertising and marketing professions, and the privatization of American “rights rhetoric.” All of these trends converged in the twenties to lend America the recognizably modern and dynamic culture we know today. More than just a character type, the flapper represented the emergence of the new, emancipated American woman. Her image endures today in film, fashion, popular media and politics. Flapper tells her story. Praise for Flapper “Zeitz’s energetic writing does his subject justice, bringing to life the wild co-ed parties; the colorful, glitzy fashion; and the general energy and enthusiasm with which the decade embraced modernity. An essential exploration of the women Zeitz deems ‘the first thoroughly modern American[s].’”—Booklist (starred)

Cassandra Edwards is a graduate student at Berkeley: gay, brilliant, nerve-wracked, miserable.
