Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Women's Studies

Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place by Terry Tempest Williams is labeled as Women's Studies/Nature. My friend Cody and I are reading it for a class.

Esme: I kind of resent it being labeled Women's Studies. Does having a female author automatically make something Women's Studies?

Cody: But most of the characters are women.

Esme: If all the characters in a book are men, is it Men's Studies?
