Book Review: The Female Persuasion

This month’s book club choice was ‘The Female Persuasion’, which initially looked like a non-fiction text to me, but is actually a contemporary American novel. Acclaimed as ‘accurate’ and ‘timely’ in its descriptions of feminism in the noughties, it has been well reviewed but not hit the big-time (in the UK) in the same way that Sally Rooney’s novels have.
