Book summary: My Life, My Body

2015 BY MARGE PIERCY

In a candid and intimate new collection of essays, poems, memoirs, reviews, rants, and railerries, Marge Piercy discusses her own development as a working-class feminist, the highs and lows of TV culture, the ego dances of a writer’s life, the homeless and the housewife, Allen Ginsberg and Marilyn Monroe, feminist utopias (and why she doesn’t live in one), why fiction isn’t physics; and of course, fame, sex, and money, not necessarily in that order. The short essays, poems, and personal memoirs intermingle like shards of glass that shine, reflect—and cut. Always personal yet always political, Piercy’s work is drawn from a deep well of feminist and political activism. Also featured is an Outspoken Interview, in which the author lays out her personal rules for living on Cape Cod, caring for cats, and making marriage work.
