Cool Girls Read
First read of the year. Also, Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a genius.
After reading the much talked about New Yorker piece, 'Cat Person,' I found The Yellow Wallpaper at my local library and read it in one sitting. A masterpiece and clearly a relevant work of fiction that speaks to women even today, I cannot say enough how much I loved this story. Not even kidding, I spent the next week finding ways to bring it up in conversation whether with coworkers or family members. Drawn heavily from the writer's own experience,The Yellow Wallpaper is a must for every woman. Also, the reference to The Yellow Wallpaper in Darren Aronofsky latest film, Mother was spot on.
