"She is a writer and journalist whose voice belongs to the world."--Gloria Steinem "An invaluable account of the cumulative weariness of the soul brought on by daily life in an Eastern European country."--Vivian Gornick, critic and essayist (National Book Award nominee) "Seldom has such a narrative been so spirited and immediate."--Christopher Hitchens "Not only the first ever grassroots feminist critique of communism, it's one of our first glimpses into real peoples' lives in pre-revolutionary Eastern Europe. My world is twice as large as it was before I read this book.... [Drakulic] is a brave, funny, wise and wonderfully gifted writer."--New York Times-bestselling author Barbara Ehrenreich "A thoughtful, beautifully written collection of essays...blending provocative analysis with the texture of everyday life."--New York Times Book Review
