Ah, the Badgers have discovered each other!

And: Wow, you HAVE read a lot. Not surprised, though.

There was a fast and furious comment discussion going on about this list yesterday at phantomscribbler.blogspot.com. I didn't have the focus to contribute significantly (since I was supposed to be working in the first place) but everyone else said what I would've, anyway.

JM

There's a movement afoot to modify the list to include _really_ dead women writers (Aphra Benn, etc), so yes please step up and modify it to include authors in languages other than English! I know the commentors attached to Phantom Scribbler's post would love to hear what you have to say, and learn about more folks they need to read. Pop on over there and let them know elswhere (and myself) thoroughly vouch for your infinite wisdom in this area!

Thanks for making the link, JM; nice to run into another phantom/badgerbag crossover reader!

Why has no one said Alison Lurie .. is she out of fashion? Also Margery Allingham and Margaret Drabble (A.S. Byatt's sister.. once far more famous).

OMG! I read A Midwife's Tale a few years ago - it was awesome. A midwife's journal from almost all of her married life, I believe, up till close to her death.

Some of the best parts...it was right before the revolution, so you could empathize with hapless, apolitical working folks stuck in the middle of the rebels and the Loyalists. How complex! How shades of gray and multifaceted! I thought. Why do we even bother teaching kids in grade school, Patriots = good, Tories = bad?

Other great parts? The amount of unwed mothers havin' babies in the late 1700's! Plus the unique way that they had to "verify" the father, absent DNA testing.

Also, the analysis of the home economics. The best years were when the family had 3 or 4 teenage girls at home. Dad was a surveyor, Mom a midwife, and they took in laundry that the girls all did while mom was off delivering babies.

Read it! Read it!

Me too! Me too! And I went one step farther, counted all my questions marks (27), and added 27 more authors.

There are masses of brilliant women crime writers, of course, including .. Agatha Christie.

My uncle's music school in San Francisco, Sunset Academy of Music. He's a really great guitar teacher for adults or kids, a good listener with a sense of humor and intuitive understanding of teaching.
