“The point of ‘Why I Am Not a Feminist’ isn’t really that Crispin is not a feminist; it’s that she has no interest in being a part of a club that has opened its doors and lost sight of its politics—a club that would, if she weren’t so busy disavowing it, invite Kellyanne Conway in….Crispin’s argument is bracing, and a rare counterbalance; where feminism is concerned, broad acceptability is almost always framed as an unquestioned good.” —The New Yorker on Why I Am Not a Feminist

“Argues against the current brand of feminism that equates progress with buying into the status quo, and calls for a reinvestment in radical, even revolutionary thinking about what feminism can mean, and do.” Elle on Why I Am Not a Feminist

“Laser-like insight into feminism’s strengths and weaknesses…Rhetoric that soars and sears…Through insights that provoke discussion and dissension, Crispin rallies the kind of radical verve that once vitalized a revolution in the hope that it will do so once again.” Booklist on Why I Am Not a Feminist

“The author’s ferocious critique effectively reframes the terms of any serious discussion of feminism. You’ll never trust a you-go-girl just-lean-in bromide again. Forget busting glass ceilings. Crispin has taken a wrecking ball to the whole structure.” — Kirkus starred review of Why I Am Not a Feminist

“Feminists have, in fact, become polite insiders, and Crispin is here to show them how to punch their way out. A rallying manifesto; start swinging.” — Library Journal on Why I Am Not a Feminist

“This urban fairy tale delivers something that is both subtle and profound in its examination of the human soul. Magically delicious.” — Kirkus on Eggshells

“A whimsical jaunt through Dublin and a modern take on many old Irish folktakes…Humorous, charming, and original.” — Booklist on Eggshells
