Ann-Marie Priest: Legacy Books

In this minisode from FWF 2018 Legacy Books, Ann-Marie Priest talks about what makes fiction feminist and what she discovered about writing from reading Australian writer Chrsitina Stead.

On Stead’s For Love Alone “Three things about this book that challenged me completely: the idea of female desire as separate to morality, ethics, love and romance; shows how so much about love is constructed by society and how it’s so misogynistic; marriage not meeting women’s needs.”
