Anmeldelser

«The Awakening is not only one of the most important novels in the history of American women's writing, it is an acknowledged American masterpiece . . . Chopin offers a compelling portrait of female experience, one of the first of its kind»

SARAH CHURCHWELL

«Chopin's deceptively slight novel is the kind of book revolutions are made of . . . Reissued with a forward by Barbara Kingsolver, this angry, eye-opening novel is well worth adding to your reading list»

* Harper's Bazaar *

«Even more powerful than I remembered»

MARGARET DRABBLE

«A Creole Bovary is this little novel of Miss Chopin's»

WILLA CATHER

«Chopin's slight, brittle and fierce novel became a classic and a cult, shocking readers with its candid and unsentimental portrait of marital infidelity . . . it remains delicately bitter and acidly angry»

* Observer *

«Incisive, brilliant and haunting»

MAGGIE O'FARRELL

«This landmark feminist novel, first published in 1899, remains startlingly relevant»

JUDY BLUME, My Life in Books, * Elle *

«A quietly explosive study of female impotence, it is quite superb»

* Independent on Sunday *

«Sometimes bold, fearless writing really does have to wait for 'someone in some future time' for readers yet to come. Sleeping Beauties, once awakened, will always serve a contemporary agenda. But Chopin's The Awakening is now justly regarded as an American classic and read with passion and delight»

* Literary Review *

«Plucky and masterly»

* The Lady *
