Interesting reads…

The Guardian this weekend contained reviews (here, here, here and here) of the following books, which looked to be interesting:

  •  The Female Thing
       by Laura Kipnis
  • The Myth of Mars and Venus: Do Men and Women Really Speak Different Languages?
    by Deborah Cameron
    [see post below on this one]
  • Rape: A History from 1860 to the Present
    by Joanna Bourke
  • Virgins: A Cultural History
    by Anke Bernau

Haven’t read any of them, but they’re on the ‘to read’ list! (and if you don’t get round to reading the books, the reviews themselves, linked above, are interesting)
