Book Review on A Little Book Problem
I can’t thank Julie at A Little Book Problem enough for her glowing review of Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Here are a few excerpts:
“This is a book for anyone who is interested in examining gender politics at the same time as enjoying an entertaining story of female friendship and empowerment.
“There was not a part of this book that was dry or heavy or lecturing and I fairly raced through it.
“Astrid’s story, in particular, rung some uncomfortable bells and made me think back to things that happened to me as a young, professional but inexperienced woman starting work in a legal firm, in a very male-dominated specialism.
“It does a good job provoking internal questioning on gender politics in general, and for that reason can make for uncomfortable reading at times….All of these issues are presented by way of an entertaining and pacy story of three young women navigating their way through the early years of adulthood and freedom and learning some difficult truths and important life lessons along the way. “
(Side note: I love the illustration in her logo. Being surrounded by stacks of books evokes I’m sure a miserable image for many people, but for bibliophiles, it looks like heaven!)
