Just giving a feminist critique of the books I read. Pretty simple!


My views don't represent all feminists, as we're all different. There are liberal feminists, eco-feminists, radical feminists . . . and so on. I consider myself an anarcha-feminist, which means that I'll also include critiques of capitalism and neoliberalism in my analysis. 

Additionally, I don't think feminism is just about gender -- it's about race, class, sexuality, etc.

I'm also not here to engage with anti-feminists, sorry! 


After the Quake

After the Quake - Haruki Murakami, Jay Rubin Favourites so far are "Honey Pie" and "All God's Children Can Dance". Read "Super-Frog Saves Tokyo" ages ago, so I might have forgotten some. Also, my copy is apparently missing one of the stories :(Update: Finally got an actual copy, yay! Loved the story I had not read before, and the one that was oddly cut off. I hope Murakami publishes until he dies, and somehow even after then. One could probably download e-books from heaven.
