The Vulnerable Tissue of His Brain
I’m reading “The Sympathizer” by Viet Thanh Nguyen. (affiliate link) It’s a Pulitzer Prize winning novel about a spy – a communist sympathizer living in America after the end of the Vietnam war.
There are so few women-written reviews of “Widows,” it’s ridiculous!
So I wrote a review of Widows. I’m a woman. I was reading a review by another woman, Carmen Phillips, at Autostraddle. I suddenly had a burning desire to see just how many Widows reviews by women I could find.
Widows is crammed with star power, blessed with an engaging but tricky plot, and is a paen to female empowerment. I was expecting lots of action from the women, but the story built slowly toward a few moments of action at the end.
