About this product
- DescriptionMarge Piercy carries her portrait of the American experience back into the 1950s - that closed, repressive time in which forces for the upheavals of the 60s ticked away underground. Spanning 20 years, Braided Lives tells the powerful, unsentimental story of two young women coming of age. It features Jill (the fiercely independent poet) and her cousin and closest friend Donna (beautiful and alluring) as they reach the understanding that to control their lives they must fight. Braided Lives is an enduring portrait of the past and its impact on the tenuous present.
- Author BiographyMarge Piercy is the author of 17 novels, including Dance the Eagle to Sleep, Gone to Soldiers, Vida, and Woman on the Edge of Time ; numerous volumes of poetry; and a critically acclaimed memoir, Sleeping with Cats. She is the recipient of four honorary doctorates and has been a key player in many of the major progressive political battles of our time. She lives in Wellfleet, Massachusetts.
