About this book


By investigating women lifewriters' complex quest to distinguish themselves both within and from institutions and communities, this volume uses Kant's concept of unsociable sociability to formulate a divided sense of self at the heart of women's lifewriting, offering a provocative response to the notion of the relational female subject.
