Feminist author and journalist Kate Roiphe is the author of In Praise of Messy Lives, a “daring, vivid, combative” (Wall Street Journal) collection of essays that explores everything from Joan Didion to Mad Men. Her other books include The Morning After: Sex, Fear, and Feminism; The Violet Hour, and Uncommon Arrangements. Director of the Cultural Reporting and Criticism program at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, she has contributed articles to such varied publications as the New York Times, Esquire, Vogue, and the Paris Review. Presented as a series of journal entries, The Power Notebooks chronicles Roiphe’s charged personal history, weaving it together with deeper insights into the ways in which famous female writers such as Sylvia Plath and Simone de Beauvoir repeatedly saw their own power subjugated.
