This overview of 20th century women’s writing reveals startlingly rich achievements. The diversity of voices is striking. Language is used inventively in texts from the start of the century to the end. The criteria for choosing passages for this anthology were these: the editors wanted one fiction extract to represent, chronologically, each year of the 20th century. Each was to have been written by a woman, in English, & published or republished by Virago. As you read your way through these 100 extracts from 1901 to 2000, the 20th century in all its changes & its repetitions, its constraints & its liberations, its violences, its nostalgias & its hopes, will pass before your eyes. “An excellent roll-call of celebrated literary names & original voices.”
