A Limited Reading

“I think that women’s writing can tend to get read in a more limited way than men. Like, I think sometimes when men write about private feeling, it’s seen as exploratory or daring, and when women write about private feeling it’s seen as limited or in the vein of a kind of circumscribed emotional writing. So I think there can be a shame in the confessional that uniquely attaches to women that doesn’t attach in the same way to men.”

Leslie Jamison and Roxane Gay talked to Salon’s Michele Filgate about the current “golden age” of female essayists and said some very smart things, because they are smart. [Salon]
