Hello Jane, I just finished your book...in one sitting. I loved it, I only wish you were one of my friends and that I had your nads. You are inspiring. I am tempted to recomend your book to my children and grandchildren so that they might gain a deeper understanding of me. That you spoke of locale (Berkeley)I am familar with made it even more personal.
Speaking to the okness for women versus the okness for men ; considering women's historical opression makes breaking out,as Jane did,a feat.(remrmber,we only even gained the right to vote a few years back) Should it be written by a man it might be more mundane a life style. On the other hand,it could be refreshing to read such authentic vulnerability from a man; especailly were he brave and identified himself.
