About the Author

Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia, USA


Straightforward, simple prose and a spirited outlook characterize this debut collection of 12 stories tracking the growth of freethinking, idealistic, politically radical women. The pieces, all but one first-person narratives, describe stages in the evolution of white, middle-class females into radical feminists and socialist activists with a deep commitment to various leftist agendas. Two stories feature a Westchester County teenager in 1966, a member of the Teen Action Movement, whose flirtatious friendships with teenage black boys deepen into sensual awakenings. "Credentials," more of an autobiographical essay than fiction (co-written with Louise Rafkin), is told in two voices, as "Barbara" and "Louise" exchange rather tepid reminiscences about their friendship (one's a lesbian, the other's not). Other stories follow Ellen Chatfield, "inappropriately Caucasian, inappropriately heterosexual," who in "The Spread of Maoism" is a na‹ve, earnest '70s freshman activist at Berkeley. She acknowledges her feminist/Communist heritage in "Death of a Dillon Girl," a tale honoring the line of zany, feisty women in her mother's family. Elsewhere, Ellen teaches English in Puerto Rico, where she's immersed in macho culture and embarrassingly in love with a younger man, Wilfredo Mel‚ndez, and a 30-year-old Ellen turns up waitressing at a trendy French restaurant in San Francisco, pursuing intense friendships with her Hispanic co-workers. Sometimes Selfridge's tales are pleasing, with their sweet if tame, good-natured self-mockery, but bland reminiscences of junior high home economics, monotonous discussions of feminism and a "been there, done that" attitude may have readers hoping in vain for a surprising twist in this otherwise routine jaunt through the realm of leftist political activism.
